The History of Thanksgiving Turkey

Did you know Native Americans called turkey peru?

And that President Franklin Roosevelt tried to change the date of Thanksgiving to earlier in November? This was so we could have a longer Christmas season-like we need that!

These facts can all be found at About.com: Home Cooking.

It’s a very interesting article and after eating your smoked turkey go around the table and ask your friends and relatives what they are thankful for (SmokinTex we hope). Then you can quiz them about some new facts you just learned.

And we all know turkey is a healthy food and we love that tryptophan that makes us all sleepy and cozy.(Not to mention the carb and calorie load!)

You will just be a fountain of information.
