I will start off Christmas eve day smoking a chicken for a gumbo for Christmas eve dinner.
Christmas Day is a spiral Ham twice smoked on the WSM along with some ABT's. Debbie is making deviled eggs and sweet taters along with some other stuff. I am making a pot of my Grandmas corn Maque Choux as well. Very Happy

Not sure yet the wife's working at the hospital on Christmas so I might cook something for the local PD on duty and maybe the ER at the hospital. But Christmas eve we are having prime rib maybe some grilled oysters and stone crab claws and my wife told me I had to cook my mothers cornbread dressing.
Sunday all the kids are coming over for brunch which will include shrimp n grits a couple of fatties and what ever else you have for brunch

I know what I'll be having, but I may need to bum some gas money since I'll be driving from here to TX, down to FL, and probably catch a flight to Canada. Laughing It all sounds great. Christmas breakfast will be my "famous" omelets. (Been a Christmas morning tradition since I was a kid.) Christmas dinner will be at the in-laws house, so that's ham, deviled eggs, mashed taters, green beans, etc, you know the drill. Sat or Sun, I'll be smoking a 13.24 lb turkey to try my hand at this "gumbo" type stuff you all keep raving about. I love gumbo, just never made it before. It'll also be my first time making a roux. Gonna use the bacon fat from the omelet bacon and butter. Wish me luck! Can not for the life of me find BigOrson's "canned Jesus," roux in a jar. Not a single grocery store around here carries it, not even the high-dollar "yuppie" stores down in Knoxville. The only other place I haven't checked is an Amish store. If you can't find it anywhere else, Yoder's has it. Anywho....

Saturday's Christmas with my parents, they have a spiral sliced ham and my wife and I will be bringing the classic green bean casserole and Mac-and-Cheese. I was thinking of doing Old Dave's Mac and Cheese (http://www.thesmokering.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=69018), but my wife said "No" since we have to travel with it, so it will wait for another time.

Sunday with my wife's family, we will be doing Forever Roasted Pork, by Michael Chiarello:
http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/michael-chiarello/forever-roasted-pork-recipe.html
We will cook it in the oven as it really makes the house smell wonderful. We have not figured out what we will be pairing it with yet, but will figure it out in the next day or so.

We're going to the neighbors and I'm making brisket sliders. It's supposed to be in the 70's here. Bonus smoking weather!

Our Christmas tradition is for Dad , brother in law & me to boil up a big pot of shrimp , crab legs , corn & taters while we throw some lobster tails & more shrimp on the grille . While we are slaving over this task the women folk will be frying up some more shrimp & making scampi & some sides.

All good. We are smoking an injected turkey. Used to do a standing rib roast with yorkshire pudding, but our older son announced he would prefer a smoked turkey this year. He is trying to get us to eat healthier, so I have to make some roasted asparagus, instead of the usual sides. Just glad to have him join us. Happy Holidays to all.

Spiral sliced ham, mashed taters, manicotti, pasta sauce with sausage & meatballs. Folks will be bringing; green bean cassarole, and much more food than I could possibly even get a taste of.

I've got a pork belly, with loin attached, and rind on. Planning on doing a porcetta roast with it, getting that skin nice and crispy crackling, stuffing with a mix of rosemary, garlic, orange zest, fennel pollen, salt, pepper, and home rendered lard. Roast at a low heat for 90% of the cook time then crank it so the crackling will turn into pork candy ... damn I am hungry now!

Currently curing some bacon for Christmas day..

Christmas day at home with my son's and daughter in law, grandson:
Breakfast egg bake with home made sausage and bacon, cheesy tater casserole, hot ham and cheese bites [ wrapped in pizza dough ].

No snow here in Boston either but great smoking temps so at least something can make us smile. Traditional pork butt on Christmas Eve with BBQ sauce from iQue BBQ. Christmas day will see an amazing looking 5 bone standing rib roast hit the smoker over some hickory. Haven't decided on the rub yet. Green beans, Brussels and some ABTS on the side.

Happy Holidays everyone.

First thing Christmas morning firing up the "under construction" pit (weather is almost like being back home in TX) Smoking a ham; wife is making sweet potato, deviled eggs and green bean casserole. Neighbor is coming over to put a roast on the pit too. Using hickory in this pit.

Saturday into Sunday smoking a brisket on my 1st pit, plan on 16 hours of smoke, low and slow adding 2 rib slabs - all for the farrier, that and a quart of my BBQ sauce. I think I'll throw a small brisket on for me and the wife. All that on mesquite

Our daughter and future son-in-law are coming over and she wants a low country boil. It's supposed to be in the 70's on Xmas day, so that sounds good to me! I'll probably get another bushel of Oysters too.
