How long does it take to cook a Christmas turkey?

Well, at our house, it can take all dang day! This is especially true when hubby (who is an excellent cook) decides to smoke his brined turkey on the grill. This set-up has worked really well for us in the past, but apparently, right after he gets it all running well and returns inside, runs out of gas.

At least he caught it in time to throw it in the oven. Our Christmas lunch was running late, but it was delicious when we finally did get to eat it.

Life is nothing if not an adventure around here! Lesson learned: Keep a spare canister of LP gas on hand, even if buying one is initially kind of pricey.
