Fried Turkey is Great. I have yet to do it myself (much to my wifes pleasure), but my Uncle Does one every year since it got "trendy" and it is always evenly cooked and tender throughout, and he used to petrify some poor butterballs back in the Smoker days.
Luckily for me, both sets of MY Grandparents live with 30 minutes drive and this our year to be with my family so I actually get the day off. (not to mention the InLaws don't watch TV on Thanksgiving, some sort of tradition)
Should be fun though, since my brother and his wife are FINALLY getting the divorce they have been fighting about for a year..., but sadly for me his wife is still coming with him, so we may have some Springer Episodes before the Cowboy game. (if they try getting loud or disruptive DURING the game, my 88 year old Guadalcanal Vet Grandfather will throw them out of the house, he loves the Corps and Cowboys)
The other twist this year is that I am on day 16 of the South Beach Diet..so Turkey=good, everything else=eat while the wife isn't looking....
