Not much on an old dry turkey. We usually have roast, and country ham. Dressing looked forward to however.

We don't make turkey anymore. Nobody really likes it and once we realized they were just eating it for tradition we went to just making a ham. Dressing for sure. Whatever else is there will be fine. My wife makes a good pumpkin pie cheesecake I look forward to every year.

We brine the turkey (Alton Browns Brine) for about 12 hours and then throw her on the smoker. It turns out so yummy whether you cook it in the oven or smoke it but we love our smoker.

Pecan Pie, green bean casserole, REAL Cranberry sauce, a cornbread corn casserole, 10 containers of coolwhip (7 for pre-gaming, ha!), and deviled eggs (jalapeno)

I really don't know.

I've been in Little Rock now for a week and most likely will be putting my twin brother into hospice care in the next 24 hrs. It's been a long fight, and he's tired, really tired.

Growing up, we usually had, country ham, turkey, dressing made from cornbread, biscuits, turkey broth, with gravy, mashed potatoes, oyster casserole, broccoli casserole. For dessert fruit salad( fruit cocktail mixed with whipped cream, egg white dressing topped with marshmallows, pumpkin and or pecan pie.
Nowadays, we will have some version of those things not all of them as our family gatherings are smaller. Sometimes we go to friends homes for Thanksgiving meal, still great food and fellowship.

We've been using the "oil less fryer" for the last few years, after a side by side taste test with a peanut oil fried turkey in which the oil less one tasted just as good, if not better, and was more moist throughout. We inject the turkey the night before, season it, and then put it in the oil less fryer, with mesquite wood chips, and we have yet to have any areas of the turkey that weren't moist, and tasty.

For the rest of the meal, it's usually dressing, mashed potatoes with giblet gravy, cast iron skillet cornbread, english pea salad, deviled eggs, sweet potatoes, chocolate meringue pie, pecan pie, fruit salad, and coconut meringue pie...

Enjoy the traditional turkey feast, this year only wife and I so gonna let someone else cook. Growing up in 50's SE Ala, deer and turkeys hunted to extension (reintroduced early '60's). Thanksgiving was a family hunt and cookout. All men and boys went small game hunting in morning. come in compare what game gotten then split up go for other game in afternoon. Nighttime cook in cast iron wash pot around campfire usually squirrel, rabbit, young raccoon, quail, usually some catfish. A chicken or two if hunting not good. Always hush puppies and ladies did other sides. Never knew turkey/dressing as Thanksgiving tradition until I left home.
