Thanksgiving Turkey 101: How To Select, Prepare, and Serve

Traditions abound at Thanksgiving—and each family has its own. For some, Thanksgiving dinner isn’t complete without grandma’s secret gravy recipe. For others, it’s the green bean casserole or the pecan pie. For others, it’s the tradition of Dad carving the turkey at the head of the table, or all the children reciting the things for which they are thankful.

But one thing is certain—nearly every Thanksgiving dinner centers around a big, juicy, golden brown, roasted-to-perfection turkey. That’s why we’ve put together this A to Z guide of how to select, prepare, and serve your Thanksgiving turkey.

This year, let us help you treat your family to the juiciest, freshest, most natural and wholesome turkey available anywhere—a fresh All-Natural Thanksgiving Turkey from Lobel’s of New York.

It’ll truly be your most memorable Thanksgiving yet.

Culinary Classic: Gratin

Gratin Dishes: C’est Cheese

In common use, the phrase au gratin has become synonymous with a meat, vegetable, or other dish that has cheese in it (macaroni and cheese being the most ubiquitous gratin dish of all).

But that’s not always the case.

From One Extreme to the Other: Chile Peppers

The most common way to organize peppers is by the degree of their heat, or pungency. The chemical that carries the heat in pepper is called capsaicin, and its concentration determines just how hot a given pepper is.

The common measuring unit is a Scoville heat unit (SHU) developed by Wilbur Scoville, a pharmacist, in 1912. The heat ratings are assigned by the results of a panel of taste testers, not objective data.

Cut of the Month: Brisket

The Lobel family of Lobel’s Prime Meats in Manhattan and Lobel’s of New York online butcher shop are fourth- and fifth-generation butchers. With our Cut of the Month series, we will bring you their wealth of knowledge and expertise on specific cuts of meat, including their unique characteristics, preparation methods, and how to select the best cut.

Brisket is one of our more popular cuts. Customers are always asking for it, and we’ve learned over the years that people are passionate about their brisket! That said, brisket is not the same thing to all people. To some, it’s the quintessential cut for good ol’ low-and-slow barbeque. To others, it’s a slow-cooked comfort food. And to others, it’s the centerpiece to a traditional Passover feast.

For these reasons, we’ve selected brisket for this month’s Cut of the Month.
