As we head into the month of November, We will say goodbye to baseball and hello to basketball. The National Basketball Association and the NCAA begin play to determine a champion. We got you covered with everything hoops, the Full NBA November Schedule,  NCAA College Basketball Season Previews by Conference and links, and the complete NCAA CB Schedule for November. And of course, we have the FANFOOD TOP 10 NBA teams and FANFOOD TOP 10 NCAA College Basketball squads.

But let’s not forget about Football. The NFL enters it’s second half and we are starting to think about playoffs, yes PLAYOFFS. Speaking of playoffs, the NCAA is in it’s third season with the College Football Playoff (CFP) Systemin this article you will find links to the most current information from the College Football Selection Committee, the group that picks the 4 Schools that will compete for the Trophy. Click here for the FULL NFL Schedule in November and the remaining games in the NCAA.

Keeping with the Playoff Theme, NASCAR is in the midst of it’s own. 8 Drivers remain in the Eliminator Round, with the Top 4 Drivers competing for the Championship on November 20th in Miami.

And in Professional Tennis, the ATP has a Tournament of it’s own to crown a Champion. The Barclays ATP World Tour FINALS are being held in London, November 13th – 20th. Eight players are divided into two groups of four and play three round-robin matches each against the other players in their group. The two players with the best records in each group progress to the semifinals, with the winners meeting in the final to determine the champion.

Finally, later in the month the 104th Grey Cup will be played to decide the champion for the 2016 CFL season. It will be played on November 27, 2016, at BMO Field in Toronto, Ontario

Of course, when we think of November, we think of Thanksgiving, and whether this is your first time hosting a Dinner, or you are a Seasoned Pro, we got a ton of information for you to use from helpful tips and tricks, recipes for the bird and our favorite sides, to how to carve the beast, and all the games you can watch while you are doing it.

November is a great time for sports, and here is your guide.

Two teams with lengthy championship droughts meet in the 2016 World Series, which began on Tuesday night – 10/25.

The Cleveland Indians will possess home-field advantage thanks to an American League victory in the All-Star Game, and reached this point by bumping the Boston Red Sox and Toronto Blue Jays. The Chicago Cubs, baseball’s best team during the regular season, got here by defeating the San Francisco Giants and Los Angeles Dodgers. It’s the Indians’ first time here since 1997, and the Cubs’ first time here since 1945.

It’s been an entertaining series so far as the Cubs won game 4 at home to force the series back to Cleveland.

Here is the schedule and broadcast information for this year’s best-of-seven ALCS. All start times are ET.

Another way to catch a World Series live stream is with MLB.TV. This service is the official streaming service of the MLB, and with it you can watch all World Series games that air on the main FOX channel.

If you are a verified customer of a participating cable or video service provider, you can gain authenticated access with MLB.TV, which will allow you to watch a World Series stream live every game that airs on FOX. But that’s only if you have cable. If you do not have cable or can’t authenticate your subscription, then you won’t be able to watch the World Series stream live, but you can still watch a replay of the game starting 90 minutes after the live broadcast concludes. If you don’t have cable, tune into your local FOX network over the air.

NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE

 

Right now it’s the Patriots and then everyone else. They have better coaching, better weapons, a better QB, and the best schedule (minus CIN) in the NFL.  They are poised to win the division, home field advantage throughout the playoffs, and a trip to Houston for SB LI. No other team is close, and it’s sad.

NCAA COLLEGE FOOTBALL

 

College football just got its closest thing yet to a 2016 mayhem Saturday, with four unbeaten teams falling in late October, leaving us with just five in FBS.

Wisconsin knocked off Nebraska late,

Charlie Strong bought himself time by wrecking Baylor,

Oklahoma State beat up West Virginia, and Wyoming’s dancing after beating Boise State for the first time ever.

Below, updated College Football Playoff picks and bowl projections from sbnation, with the top of the postseason looking more eerily established as time goes on. Always trust in college football to provide chaos, but we’re running out of opportunities for it to strike this year’s group of early rulers.

Elsewhere, Clemson survived at Florida State amid a call that has Jimbo Fisher raging,

Lamar Jackson added his Heisman Moment, and Washington passed its first actual test of the year.

To the bowl game picks, and then a bunch more stuff from Saturday! The year’s first official Playoff rankings come out on Tuesday night, which should help change up next week’s edition of projections.

 

College Football Playoff

Dec. 31, Glendale, AZ
ClemsonMichiganPlayoff rankings top 4
Peach
Dec. 31, Atlanta
AlabamaWashingtonPlayoff rankings top 4
National Championship
Jan. 9, Tampa
AlabamaMichiganFiesta winner vs. Peach winner

 

So, like, yeah, that’s super obvious. Those are the last four unbeaten Power 5 conference teams, a tidy one per non-Big 12 league.

The thing is: it’s even more stratified than it looks, at least until conference championships. It’s easy to see how any of the four could absorb a loss, as long as it’s not to a specific division contender.

  • The exception is Clemson, which can now lose one regular season game and likely still make it in.
  • Auburn or LSU could still stop Bama, but would have to win out.
  • Michigan’s game at Ohio State would count as the division championship, if OSU didn’t lose again beforehand, so that remains on course to be the regular season’s most important game.
  • And Washington-Washington State could be the same for the Pac-12 North, albeit without Playoff stakes for the Cougars.

But otherwise, it’s not easy to see exactly how things shake up. So we’ll wait.

To be honest, the dream scenario at this point is for all four to hit the Playoff at 13-0. Can you imagine? Ain’t gonna happen, but that’s why it’s a dream.

 

New Year’s Six bowls

Sugar
Jan. 2, New Orleans
OklahomaTexas A&MBig 12 1 vs. SEC 1
Orange
Dec. 30, Miami
LouisvilleWisconsinACC vs. Big Ten/SEC/ND

 

And there’s the other undefeated team, WMU, in as the New Year’s Six bowls’ mid-major autobid. With Boise State no longer undefeated and the AAC fresh out of one-loss teams, WMU is the easy favorite here. And its win over Northwestern is becoming decent, with NU taking Ohio State to the wire and probably making a bowl.

The others are set up according to the committee’s top-ranked teams from certain conferences. WMU-Wisconsin would probably be more fun than WMU-whoever, since the Broncos already have two Big Ten West wins this season and would deserve a shot at the division’s best team, but the Badgers ranking behind an LSU team they’ve beaten doesn’t seem too likely, if records are comparable.

The College Football Playoff (CFP) is a big success. Fans, including many who are new to the sport, enjoy it. The first College Football Playoff semifinals and national championship were the three most-viewed programs in cable television history.

 

Every Game Counts
The playoff preserves the excitement and significance of college football’s unique regular season where every game counts.

Four Teams
The selection committee ranks the teams based on conference championships won, strength of schedule, head-to-head results, comparison of results against common opponents and other factors.

Two Days
New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day belong to college football, with two semifinal games and four other top bowl games continuing a wonderful tradition.

One Goal
The two teams winning the playoff semifinals compete for the College Football Playoff National Championship. That game is in a different city each year, always on a Monday night.

 

Universal Access
Every FBS team has equal access to the College Football Playoff based on its performance. No team automatically qualifies.

 

More Revenue
The format increases revenue for all conferences and independent institutions.

 

Governance
University presidents and chancellors from all 10 FBS conferences and Notre Dame serve on the College Football Playoff Board of Managers and govern the administrative operations, with commissioners (the management committee) managing the event. A small staff in the playoff office in Irving, Texas, carries out the day-to-day responsibilities.

 

Selection Committee
A talented group of high-integrity individuals with experience as coaches, student-athletes, college administrators and journalists, along with sitting athletics directors, comprise the selection committee. Members of the committee are: Jeff Long (chair), Barry Alvarez, Mike Gould, Pat Haden, Kirby Hocutt, Tom Jernstedt, Bobby Johnson, Tom Osborne, Dan Radakovich, Condoleezza Rice, Mike Tranghese, Steve Wieberg and Tyrone Willingham.

 

Selection Committee Responsibilities
Rank the top 25 teams and assign the top four to semifinal sites.
Assign teams to New Year’s bowls.
Create competitive matchups.
Attempt to avoid rematches of regular-season games and repeat appearances in specific bowls.
Consider geography.

 

Participants in the New Year’s Bowls
Both participants in the Orange, Rose and Sugar Bowls are contracted outside the playoff arrange­ment (Big Ten and Pac-12 to Rose Bowl; SEC and Big 12 to Sugar Bowl; ACC to Orange Bowl against the highest ranked available team from the SEC, Big Ten and Notre Dame). If a conference champion qualifies for the playoff, then the bowl will choose a replacement from that conference. When those bowls host the semifinals and their contracted conference champions do not qualify, then the dis­placed champion(s) will play in one of the other New Year’s bowls.

When not hosting semifinals, the Cotton, Fiesta and Peach Bowls will welcome displaced conference champions and the top-ranked champion from a non-contract conference. The highest-ranked available teams will fill any other berths. The selection committee will make the pairings.

 

2016 Rankings

The committee will begin to produce rankings following week nine of the college football season. Members will again meet in person, on Mondays and Tuesdays. The committee will issue its first rankings Tuesday, November 1, with subsequent rankings taking place the next five weeks. The rankings will be revealed each week on ESPN’s College Football Playoff: Top 25. The final selection committee rankings of 2016 will be released on Selection Day, Sunday, December 4. At this time, the selection committee will announce Playoff Semifinal matchups, New Year’s bowl pairings, and the final Top 25 exclusively via College Football Playoff Selection Day programming on ESPN.

Below is the complete schedule for the selection committee rankings announcement on ESPN:

November 1 – 7 p.m. ET
November 8 – 7 p.m. ET
November 15 – 9 p.m. ET*
November 22 – 7 p.m. ET
November 29 – 7 p.m. ET
December 4 (Selection Day and Playoff Semifinal teams announced) – Noon ET

 

*Approximate start time will be 9 p.m. from the Champions Classic basketball doubleheader at Madison Square Garden. The rankings will be revealed live between the Kentucky vs. Michigan State and Duke vs. Kansas basketball games.

NATIONAL HOCKEY LEAGUE

 

While it is still early in the 2016-17 NHL season, it’s never too early to determine how a team is doing. Some teams everyone expected to struggle have flourished. On the other side of the coin, there are also teams everyone penciled in as a playoff team who have struggled mightily.

So far, this season has been defined by surprises and disappointments. It’s still quite early, but a number of teams are surprising contenders and shouldn’t be ignored. There are also teams quickly digging themselves into a hole they might not be able to get themselves out of.

On paper, at least, some teams have improved, while others continue to tweak their blueprints.

 

Here are the FANFOOD TOP NHL Teams heading into November:

  1. MONTREAL CANADIENS
  2. WASHINGTON CAPITALS
  3. FLORIDA PANTHERS
  4. TAMPA BAY LIGHTNING
  5. EDMONTON OILERS
  6. ST. LOUIS BLUES
  7. NEW YORK RANGERS

NATIONAL BASKETBALL ASSOCIATION

 

Conference Previews

 

 

With most of the legends out, new breeds need to finally step up. And after much of the fanfare during offseason, we are now ready to bring you what we think has the best chances of landing the Top 4 spots in the Eastern Conference. The list is arranged alphabetically only.

 

ATLANTA HAWKS

Starters: Dennis Schröder (PG), Kent Bazemore (SG/SF), Kyle Korver (SG/SF), Paul Millsap (PF), Dwight Howard (C)

Surprisingly, even with two of the original starters out, the Atlanta Hawks still looks good on paper. There’s the defensive-minded Millsap and Bazemore, and the sweet-shooting Korver. Now, Schröder will be tested this season whether he belongs to the elite point guards in the league.

With teammates willing to pass the ball for higher percentage shots, Howard’s number may soon find its mark once again. Time and again, for Howard to be very effective someone must feed him the ball down the baseline. This could be the time to shine for Schröder.

 

BOSTON CELTICS

Starters: Isaiah Thomas (PG), Avery Bradley (SG), Jae Crowder (SF), Amir Johnson (PF), Al Horford (C)

The smallest starting roster in the league, the Celtics may have lost its starting center and a dependable backup small forward. But then they got Al Horford, a certified All-Star, in return. In addition, the Celtics got Gerald Green, whom the Celtics drafted back in 2005, and this year’s overall third draft pick, Jaylen Brown.
During the offseason, there were buzzes that coach Utah Jazz star Gordon Hayward might soon be reuniting with his college coach and now Celtics head coach Brad Stevens. The rumored trade has not prospered, but it looks like Hayward might opt out of his final year to become a free agent, much easier way rather than the Celtics bidding farewell to one or two of its players if the trade pushes through.

 

CLEVELAND CAVALIERS

Starters: Kyrie Irving (PG), Iman Shumpert (SG), LeBron James (SF), Kevin Love (PF), Tristan Thompson (C)

Even without JR Smith, there’s no question about it — the defending champion Cleveland Cavaliers are the top choice and most likely to have the easiest way going to the NBA Playoffs. The Cavs have the most solid starting lineup, and should all stay healthy and injury-free for the entire season, the Cavaliers meet the Warriors in the finals for the third straight season.

 

TORONTO RAPTORS

Starters: Kyle Lowry (PG), DeMar DeRozan (SG), DeMarre Carroll (SF), Jared Sullinger (PF), Jonas Valanciunas (C)

The most solid backcourt tandem in the East, the Raptors will be led by Lowry and DeRozan once again. The Raptors also has almost the same core except for one. That post will soon be filled in by Sullinger.

Interestingly, the Raptors were able to draft Jakob Pöltl, this year’s Pac-12 Player of the Year awardee. How soon can Pöltl make an impact in the league, we’ll soon find out.

 

Eastern Conference Dark Horses

To complete our prediction, here are five teams who have high chances of competing for the remaining spots for the Eastern Conference NBA Playoffs: New York Knicks, Chicago Bulls, Indiana Pacers, Milwaukee Bucks and Philadelphia 76ers. Surprised of the last two teams mentioned?

 

No doubt the West has the numbers this coming NBA season, though the East is fast gaining momentum. For many basketball analysts, the next NBA champion would come from the West. But of course, the ball is round. So what we came up with are the possible teams who have the best chances of landing on the Top 4 spots in the Western Conference.

 

GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS

Starters: Stephen Curry (PG), Klay Thompson (SG), Kevin Durant (SF), Draymond Green (PF), Zaza Pachulia (C)

Yes, the Warriors have the strongest lineup in the NBA, period. I guess no one will be surprised if the quartet of Curry, Durant, Thompson and Green drops 100 points per game. How about the growing number of dependable backup led by 2015 NBA Finals MVP Andre Iguodala?
I wonder if they need the entire season to surpass their record of 73-9 (win-loss) set last season. As many basketball analysts believe, injury is the only the obstacle for the Warriors to get its second NBA championship in three years.

 

LOS ANGELES CLIPPERS

Starters: Chris Paul (PG), J.J. Redick (SG), Paul Pierce (SF), Blake Griffin (PF), DeAndre Jordan (C)

Many believe the LA Clippers have been cursed simply because they have one of the strongest lineups in the league during the past five seasons and yet they fail to even reach the Western Conference Finals. Today, Pierce announced that this would be his final season playing in the NBA. Now, if he can get close to what Kobe Bryant posted during his final season, it would really be a big boost for the Clippers, not to mention a laurel on his legacy.

 

PORTLAND TRAIL BLAZERS

Starters: Damian Lillard (PG), C.J. McCollum (SG), Evan Turner (SF), Al-Farouq Aminu (PF), Mason Plumlee (C)

Many believe the backcourt tandem of Lillard and McCollum is as strong as the backcourt tandem of the Warriors. The only problem is who will be left to orchestrate the offense once the two hit the bench. Sure, they can make Top 4 easily, but the intensity is different during the Playoffs. And for the Trail Blazers to make their dreams come true, all of them must contribute in any ways they can.

 

SAN ANTONIO SPURS

Starters: Tony Parker (PG), Danny Green (SG), Kawhi Leonard (SF), LaMarcus Aldridge (PF), Pau Gasol (C)

The only team who can play at par with the Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers in almost all aspects, the Spurs team is lucky to have Gasol and David Lee as replacements for the now retired future Hall of Famer Tim Duncan. Should all go as planned, the Spurs will meet the Warriors in the Western Conference Finals.
From there it’ll be a fight of tooth and nail up to the last second. Not sure who will win but this is definitely a match worth waiting.

 

Western Conference Dark Horses

Because some teams got better doesn’t mean others look pale. For instance, Durant leaving OKC left Russell Westbrook to carry the weight of the entire team. That doesn’t mean Westbrook, whom many basketball analysts believe would have a breakthrough performance this season, cannot bring them to the playoffs.
Anyways, here are the possible teams that are likely to become part of the Western Conference Playoffs round: Oklahoma City Thunder, Memphis Grizzlies, Dallas Mavericks and Utah Jazz. Notably missing is the Houston Rockets. It is also quite interesting to see how Luke Walton will try to turn the tide for the Los Angeles Lakers.

ON

If you’re an NBA fan, you’re in luck. There are some great options available to catch your favorite teams live without a cable subscription. A great option to watch NBA online is Sling TV. This popular streaming service offers ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN3 (streaming coverage of all NBA games on ABC), and TNT streaming as part of their channel lineup. Both networks are home to a plethora of games throughout the regular season, and Sling TV gives you a way to enjoy a legal NBA playoffs live stream. You can also watch the NBA All-Star Game online with TNT. You also get access to ESPN2, which sometimes carries a few playoff games. Finally, don’t forget the NBA Draft airs on ESPN.

Sling TV also now carries regional FOX Sports networks (along with FS1 and some local FOX affiliates) in its new $20 a month multi-stream beta package. Why is this important for NBA fans? Because many teams have all of their games broadcasted on the local FOX Sports regional network. This includes the Suns, Cavaliers,Thunder, Clippers, Magic, Hawks, Pistons, Timberwolves, Hornets, Mavericks, Spurs, Nets, Bucks, Pacers, and Pelicans. Regional networks are available subject to your location. Click here to learn more about this package.

In short, there’s no better all-around solution to stream live sports. Try the free 7-day trial here.

NBA League Pass is another popular way to watch NBA online. With this live sports streaming service, you get to choose your five favorite teams and watch them all season long for $69, or watch any team you want for $99. The downside? Local blackout rules still apply and no live access to the NBA Playoffs. Get more information here.

Throughout the regular season, ABC will air a few games each week. They also cover a portion of the postseason, including the NBA Finals. Obviously, you can watch these free over-the-air with an antenna. You can also watch ABC’s nationally televised games on ESPN3.

Finally, there’s TNT Overtime. This site usually has a couple of games on free games each week. You can check out TNT Overtime here.

NCAA College Basketball

 

Turn back the clocks to this time last year, and one thing is clear: Whatever we thought we knew about the 2015-16 college basketball season, we didn’t.

It was a time when Villanova was considered a regular-season juggernaut that was destined to fail in March. Maryland supposedly had the best starting five in America. Senior star power was thought to be a distant memory, and the Pac-12 had no dominant team.

The reality: Villanova won the national championship; Maryland failed to live up to the hype; seniors Buddy Hield and Denzel Valentine were the two best players in the sport and Oregon earned a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament.
So, preseason conventional wisdom is usually flawed. (More than) A few crazy things are bound to happen throughout the course of a season, and it’s fun to try to pinpoint off-the-wall predictions that just might come true.

NASCAR

 

 

 

 

 

The eight drivers will battle at Martinsville Speedway, Texas Motor Speedway and Phoenix International Raceway for the four spots available in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Championship. A win at any of the three races equals advancement into the next round. The rest of the field of four will be determined by order of points scored in the three races. After this round, each advancing driver will be reset to 5,000 points

Tiebreaker: If any position comes down to a tiebreaker, only the three races in the Eliminator Round matter. Wins and finishes in the regular season won’t, so the drivers will need to run up front to challenge for the win. If they can’t win, they’ll need to have more second-place finishes, third-place finishes, etc. than their competitors in order to break the tie and advance. If two drivers have the exact same finishes, the tiebreaker then goes to the driver who scored the best finish first.

Barclays ATP World Tour Finals (Men) London, England, UK

 

The 2016 ATP World Tour Finals (also known as the 2016 Barclays ATP World Tour Finals for sponsorship reasons) is a men’s tennis tournament that will be played at the O2 Arena in London, United Kingdom, in November 2016. It is the season-ending event for the best singles players and doubles teams on the 2016 ATP World Tour.

The 2016 ATP World Tour Finals will take place from 14 to 20 November at the O2 Arena in London, United Kingdom. It is the 47th edition of the tournament (42nd in doubles). The tournament is run by the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) and is part of the 2016 ATP World Tour. The event takes place on indoor hard courts. It serves as the season-ending championships for players on the ATP Tour. The eight players who qualify for the event are split into two groups of four. During this stage, players compete in a round-robin format (meaning players play against all the other players in their group). The two players with the best results in each group progress to the semifinals, where the winners of a group face the runners-up of the other group. This stage, however, is a knock-out stage. The doubles competition uses the same format.

The ATP World Tour Finals has a round-robin format, with eight players/teams divided into two groups of four. The eight seeds are determined by the ATP Rankings and ATP Doubles Team Rankings on the Monday after the last ATP World Tour tournament of the calendar year. All singles matches are the best of three tie-break sets, including the final. All doubles matches are two sets (no ad) and a Match Tie-break.

The Barclays ATP World Tour Finals is the year-end climax to the men’s professional tennis season, featuring only the world’s best eight qualified singles players and doubles teams as they battle it out for the last title of the season. Players compete for Emirates ATP Rankings points throughout the season in a bid to earn one of the eight coveted berths. Played using a round-robin format at The O2 in London, each participant plays three matches as they compete for a berth in the knockout semi-finals and beyond. An undefeated champion earns 1,500 Emirates ATP Rankings points. Total prize money offered is US$7.5 million.

 104th GREY CUP

 

The 104th Grey Cup (known as the 104th Grey Cup presented by Shaw for sponsorship reasons) is a Canadian football game that will be played on November 27, 2016, at BMO Field in Toronto, Ontario, to decide the champion for the 2016 CFL season.

The Canadian Football League will bring its championship game back to Toronto and this time it will have more of a true football feel.

The 2016 Grey Cup will be played outdoors on grass at a refurbished BMO Field, which is the new home of the Argonauts.

“We think this is the perfect opportunity,” said CFL commissioner Jeffrey Orridge. “It’s going to culminate the debut of the new era of Toronto Argonauts football and also it helps set the stage for the new era of the CFL. It’s a beautiful stadium and it’s a newly renovated stadium.

“So it’s a perfect environment for us to play and it really does symbolize the new CFL with great stadiums and great social events.”

FANFOOD GUIDE TO EVERYTHINGTHANKSGIVING

 

 

The very first Thanksgiving was observed in Plymouth, MA in 1621, when weary settlers were joined by Wampanoag Indians in celebration of a traditional Old World English harvest festival. The Thanksgiving tradition continues today with turkey, savory stuffing and cranberry sauce, plus generous helpings of pumpkin pie and other desserts traditionally prepared from family recipes handed down through the years.

We all know Thanksgiving is a time for family togetherness, but it’s also the perfect time to discover or embrace your culinary passions. The celebration, after all, is really around the dinner table. Make this year’s meal something to remember. Whether you cook a classic menu or create new traditions entirely.

 

 

Whether you are are a Seasoned Veteran or this is your first time hosting the Festivities, we got you covered with everything you need to know to make it the best Thanksgiving Ever!

Making gravy from your pan drippings is easy. You can make it with the drippings or use low sodium chicken broth while your turkey is resting. Don’t even think about using gravy from a jar.

INGREDIENTS:

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
4 cups pan drippings

PREPARATION:

Drain the pan drippings for the roasted turkey through a fine strainer.
Let sit and then remove any fat from the top of the drippings.

In a medium saucepan, melt margarine or butter.
Add in lots of black pepper.
Add in 1/2 cup flour plus 3 tablespoons; constantly whisk for about 3 minutes over low heat. Slowly add in the 4 cups turkey broth/drippings; whisk constantly over medium-low heat until bubbly and thickened (about 3 minutes).
Use right away or keep warm over lowest heat setting, whisk again before serving.

Smoking the Bird

 

For generations people have been dropping turkeys into the oven and roasting for hours. They use stuffings and little pop up timers. Guess what? You can make a great turkey this way, but wouldn’t it be great to go one step further? Smoked turkey is more flavorful and tender than one roasted in the oven. Breaking away from tradition can be hard, but let the people over all About.com walk you through the process.

The Basics:

Here’s what you are going to do. You are going to smoke your turkey to an internal temperature of 165 degrees F. This means that the coldest part of the turkey is 165 degrees F. This isn’t a suggestion. Test in at least two places (or more) and remember that turkey bones heat faster so keep the thermometer away from bone. Also, dark meat should be cooked to a higher temperature so worry about the breast, but make sure to check the thighs as well.

Deep Fried Turkey

 

How To Deep Fry a Turkey

 

As the popularity of Cajun Deep Fried Turkey has continued to grow, a whole industry has sprung up to support it. The problem is that most people face a big problem trying to do this on their stove. Namely, it makes a terrible mess and it’s dangerous to do in an enclosed space. The answer is to take it outdoors. But be warned, this can be a expensive operation, but well worth it. For those of you who don’t know what a deep fried turkey is like, let me give you the basics of the process.

 

How to Deep Fry a Turkey:

 

Step One: Get a turkey, a very large cooking pot, and some cooking oil. vegetable oil can be used, but it’s better to use peanut oil. Peanut oil is very expensive and several gallons are going to be needed.

Step Two: Prepare the turkey. It needs to be defrosted and washed. Make sure there are no pop up tender timer devices or anything left inside. And, most importantly it must be completely dry. I mean really, really dry. You know what happens when you put water in boiling oil, don’t you. You will also need to truss the turkey, meaning you need to secure the legs, neck flap, wings and tail to the body of the turkey.

Step Three: To determine the perfect amount of oil you are going to be using, place the turkey in the pot and add water until the turkey is completely covered plus two inches. With the turkey and the water there should still be several inches of room between the oil and the top of the pot. If it’s a close call, then you need either a bigger pot or a smaller turkey. Remove the turkey and measure the water. This is the amount of oil that will be needed.

Step Four: Dry and season the turkey. Various recipes will call for seasoning rubs or injection mixtures. You’ll find out more on this in the coming posts.

Step Five: Make sure that your frying pot is completely dry. Water left behind can cause some serious problems once the oil is added and starts heating up.

Step Six: Add the oil to the pot and bring it to a temperature of about 375 degrees. You should really get a good thermometer so you can get the temperatures right.

Step Seven: This is where it gets tricky. The turkey needs to be room temperature and dry. Turn off the burner when you put the turkey in. You are going to lower the turkey into the pot of very hot oil. The oil is going to splatter. You need some very good cooking gloves and a way to put the turkey in the oil while you are a safe distance. This is the reason why it’s really not that good of an idea to do it on your stove top. There are now devices to help you like Deep Fried Turkey Lifter for $39.95 that give you a good hold on the turkey. Now I have heard of people using a wire basket on the turkey and a wooden board to do this. A bit of inventing and I’m sure you’ll find a way. Anyway, slowly lower the turkey into the oil.

A good method here is dunking. When you lower the turkey into the oil it will boil up. This is why you want the burner off when you do it. People have been burned by hot oil hitting the burner. You might not need to do more than a single dunk but you should be prepared to raise the bird out of the oil it it starts boiling up. You can greatly reduce the mess and risk of personal injury by lifting the bird up as the oil boils around it. A couple of dunks and the turkey should be nicely settled in.

Step Eight: Once the bird is safely resting in the oil, turn the burner back on to get to a temperature of 350 degrees F. At this point you can go take a breather. But don’t wander too far because that turkey will be done soon. A deep fried turkey cooks at a rate of about 3 to 3 1/2 minutes per pound. A ten pound turkey should take 30-35 minutes. An instant read thermometer can help you test for doneness, but of course you will need to lift the turkey out to test it.

Step Nine: Remove the turkey from the oil when it’s done. Do this slowly and after you have turned off the burner. Let the turkey drain a little bit and you’re set to go.

Step Ten: Carve and enjoy. If you have never had a turkey cooked this way then you have not finished your life requirements. Do this and you may never put a turkey in the oven again. Despite what you might think this turkey is not oily or greasy. It’s crisp, juicy and delicious.

Of course I know that if you put your mind to it you can come up with a good cooker arrangement. But there are a couple of things this cooker needs: a good stock pot, a controllable heat source and a way to safely get the turkey in the oil and out again.

 

DEEP-FRIED TURKEY

 

INGREDIENTS

whole turkey, completely thawed
seasoned rub
peanut oil

PREPARATION
1. Get a huge pot, like a stock pot. Put the turkey (completely thawed) in the pot, add water to completely surround the turkey. Look at how much water you added; that’s how much oil you will need. Pour out the water and dry off the turkey.
2. Put a seasoned rub on the turkey. You don’t have to, but it makes the skin delicious.
3. Fill the pot with as much oil as you need..The more the better. This is where it gets expensive, because you need at least a couple gallons of oil. The better quality oils (like peanut oil) will get hotter, and work better, but you can use a cheaper oil. Now, get the oil as hot as possible, and as close to 400 as possible without excessive smoking.
4. Turn off the burner (this is a precaution to prevent spatters from hitting an open flame). Add the turkey. You can use a 2 by 4 piece of wood (thru the wrapped legs) to lower the turkey into the oil. WARNING: the oil really splatters out at this point, so STAY back. This is MESSY! Once the spattering has stopped, turn the burner back on.
5. After you add the turkey, the oil temp. will drop rapidly. That’s why you want it as hot as possible to begin with. Hopefully, it will remain around 350 degrees, so it sears the skin, and the meat does NOT get greasy.
6. Cook for about 3 min per pound, + 5 minutes. It the turkey is over 18 lbs, you might want to go 3 min per pound +10 or 15 minutes.
Turkey done this way is very tender and moist, and amazingly not greasy…

Thanksgiving Info

 

How to Pick a Turkey

The rule of thumb when buying a Thanksgiving turkey is to estimate one pound of meat per person. If you have a little extra time and money to spend, consider getting your turkey from a nearby farm. In addition to supporting the local economy, you get the freshest meat possible and won’t have to worry about defrosting. Fresh turkeys should remain refrigerated until cooked. If you buy a frozen bird, follow the tips in step two.

How to Defrost Your Turkey

You can defrost a turkey in the refrigerator or in cold water. In the fridge, you need approximately 24 hours for every 4-5 pounds of turkey. Cold water thawing takes only 30 minutes per pound of meat. You must change the water every 30 minutes, however, and refrigerate or cook your bird immediately after thawing.

Prepping Your Bird

To add extra flavor and tenderize your turkey, consider taking the time to marinate or brine it before roasting. The jury’s still out on which method creates a tastier bird, so try one this year and the other next November and let your family decide!

To Marinate: Use a fork to make holes over the whole turkey. Put the bird in a large, sturdy plastic bag, add the marinade (homemade or purchased), close the bag, and let your bird marinate overnight in the refrigerator. Be sure to discard leftover marinade before cooking the turkey.

To Brine: Prepare the brining solution, mixing 2 cups of table salt with 2 gallons of cold water in a large, clean container. You can add dried herbs to the brine, and some chefs also use brown sugar, a few cloves of garlic, or even dried red chili peppers. Submerge the turkey in the brining solution and refrigerate for 6-8 hours. Before cooking, thoroughly wash the turkey, removing all remnants of the brine.

Stuffing – Let Your Creativity Reign

While you can buy stuffing mixes, the homemade alternative is much tastier, and not as hard to prepare as you might think. There are a myriad of stuffing combinations, including a few creative twists. Here are a few:

Apples & Cranberries
Dried Fruit and Nuts Marinated in Orange Juice
Wild Rice & Cornbread
Sausage & Chestnuts
Oyster Stuffing

Many pros recommend always cooking stuffing outside the bird to prevent salmonella poisoning. In this case, you can still put an aromatic inside the bird to enhance the flavor, such as a satchel of herbs, a combination of fruit, or a Mirepoix. If you cook the stuffing in the bird, make absolute certain that you check the internal temperature to ensure it has cooked completely.

Whatever method you choose, preparing stuffing the day before Thanksgiving is a great way to save time on the big day. Just remember to keep the wet (vegetables, fruit, broth, etc) and dry ingredients separate until it’s time to cook them.

Roast a Moist Turkey

Sure you can deep fry or grill, but for most Americans, roasting is the way to enjoy this Thanksgiving staple. Use a roasting pan with low sides and add a cup of water to the bottom to help with clean-up after the meal. Roast at a minimum of 325° F until the internal temperature registers 165° F on a food thermometer. Be sure to check the meat’s temperature both at the thickest part of the breast and on the inner thigh and wing to ensure that the whole bird is thoroughly cooked. If you’ve stuffed the turkey, make sure that the center of the stuffing has also reached 165°F.

Carving Your Bird

Letting the turkey sit for 20 minutes after removing it from the oven allows the juices to set and makes the carver’s job much easier. While it’s intimidating to slice into such a masterpiece, the best way to learn to carve a turkey is to practice! Using a sharp, straight knife helps you with this delicate task.

Experts also recommend removing the drumstick and wing before cutting into the highly coveted breast meat. Once you do, cut a vertical line along the center of the breast–there should be a cartilage ridge down the center. Next, cut a horizontal line along the breast bone, starting from the outside and moving toward your vertical cut. Do this for both sides. Then, slice the breast meat at a slight slant from the outside of the breast to the center. Layer meat on a slightly warm platter, and serve soon to prevent the meat from drying out

The Most Important Thanksgiving Lesson

Whether you opt for an elaborate feast or a casual dinner, your Thanksgiving meal will be special because you share it with loved ones. Give yourself time, relax, and enjoy your time in the kitchen. Whether you’re a pro trying new things or a first-time cook planning your first feast, savor the process and take pride in your hard work.

Turkey Day and the NFL

 

For millions of Americans, from generation to generation, Thanksgiving Day and NFL football are inextricably linked.

On Thanksgiving Day in 1925, a crowd of 36,000 – then the largest in pro football history – watched the Chicago Bears play the Chicago Cardinals at Wrigley Field.

In Detroit, the relationship between the Lions and Thanksgiving football dates back to 1934 when owner G.A. RICHARDS scheduled a holiday contest between the first-year Lions and the defending world champion Chicago Bears. The game was the first NFL game nationally broadcast, with NBC radio on the dial.

Since 1966, the Cowboys have been a Thanksgiving fixture, having hosted the annual contest for 47 of the last 49 years. In 1975 and 1977, the St. Louis Cardinals played host to the game in place of Dallas. In 1978, the game returned to Dallas for good.

From touch football games with friends to watching NFL games with relatives after a holiday feast, these football moments and memories are interwoven with the holiday season.

NFL games are as much a part of Thanksgiving as turkey, mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie. This Thanksgiving will feature a tripleheader on Thursday, November 24. The first game will send the Minnesota Vikings to Detroit to face the Lions (12:30 PM ET, CBS). The late afternoon game will feature the Washington Redskins visiting the Dallas Cowboys (4:30 PM ET, FOX). The holiday concludes with the Indianapolis Colts hosting the Pittsburgh Steelers on NBC (8:30 PM ET).

NYC Marathon

 

this year’s big run in the Big Apple to kick off on Sunday morning, November 6, 2016 beginning at 9AM with the starting line at the city’s famous Verrazono-Narrows Bridge in Staten Island.

For complete TV coverage tune in to local ABC television on Channel 7 in New York City. and nationwide on ESPN and ESPN2.
All about the New York City Marathon

What began in Central Park with a 127 runners in 1970, has today grown to an international event which includes almost 50,000 runners from around the world participating in one of the world’s largest and most famous running competitions.

Where else? In NYC, where an estimated 2 million spectators pack the streets each year to cheer on a friend or relative on the traditional first Sunday in November — when the marathon runs for the a bit more than 26 miles from Staten Island to Manhattan in a carnival party atmosphere!

As usual, star gazing will also part of the fun — last year celebrity runners at the 2014 NYC Marathon included “Desperate Housewives” actress Teri Hatcher, football great Tiki Barber, and pro tennis star Caroline Wozniacki.

New York Marathon official route

The New York City Marathon starts on the Staten Island side of the Verrazano Narrows Bridge, then proceeds through Brooklyn and Queens

Crossing into Manhattan, via the Queensborough Bridge, the race next makes its way up to the Bronx and then south again to Manhattan … where the finish line awaits in Central Park.
Best New York Marathon viewing

In Manhattan, First Avenue and 59th Street traditionally provides the most dramatic views as runners spill down the ramp of the Queensborough Bridge (at the 16-mile mark) for a sharp turn on First Avenue to speed their way uptown. Otherwise, the best spectator viewing – and most elbow room – can be found on First Avenue between 65th and 96th Streets.

In Brooklyn, any spot along Fourth Avenue, the longest NYC Marathon stretch, comes highly recommended. In Queens the best spots lie along 51st Street and 44th Drive from Vernon to Crescent Street. Meanwhile, up north in the Bronx, try 138th Street from Alexander Avenue to Third Avenue.
