Damn lol. My entire family is only like 10 people so it was just the prime rib. We had a turkey or a ham with it a couple times.

We do Prime Rib at Christmas too, which is obviously superior to both Ham and Turkey.

Growing up if everyone came we were easily 30+ people for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Nowadays it's about 20. Lol still a lot. It would be crazier if some family hadn't spread out across the U.S.

Ham so good.

All the nitrates give me wicked farts. 100% worth it.

I feel like most people fuck turkey up but it's really hard to fuck up ham

And turkey doesn't keep as well as ham even if it is well cooked the first day it dries out a lot faster. You get better mileage out of the ham.

My family always did a ham and a turkey. I hate ham though. Honestly my favorite part about turkey is not eating it hot out of the oven - well aside from maybe the drumsticks. I like turkey sandwiches and then taking the turkey carcass and making turkey soup. God damn is turkey soup good.

Had baked salmon and branzino yesterday. Beats ham but worse than turkey.

Did both a ham and turkey yesterday.

I've been spatchcocking the turkey for the past few years, so the breast meat doesn't overcook and it really moist.

Ham is just a homemade glaze with orange juice, brownsugar, honey, soy sauce, and cloves.

Both were outstanding, thought the true winner every year is the gravy which I estimate has about 103958585calroies per tbsp.

There is only one real way to make turkey. Brine it for 2 days then cook it at 475 for 90 minutes. Perfect every single time.

Putting stuffing in a turkey is so dumb. It just dries it out.

If the turkey is deep fried, it competes with a good honey glazed ham.
