  1. I think this should be called Slick’s fried chicken recipe.
    Also I think the most important key is to make sure the turkey is not frozen.
    Dropping a frozen or partially frozen turkey is disastrous.

    I will miss you guys this Thanksgiving. I am cooking 4 turkeys this year.
    Be safe, have fun and tell everyone we said Happy Turkey day!

    • Great title – maybe I’ll have you “name that blog post” from now on. Good point about the frozen turkey. I’m going to edit and add.

      I will miss y’all also. Have fun cookin’ and give the family a hug for us.
