Calamari in my homemade red sauce with fried smelts on Christmas eve. Christmas day we will either fry a turkey or do a prime rib and lobster fiesta. There will be plenty of gin martinis and other forms of imbibery to add accent to these entrees.

Get a good injector and marinade and don't be shy about getting it into the meat, I always visulaize myself as one of the botox doc's. Shallow penetration and fill 'er up. (man if that one isn't a 3-0 fastball....)Be careful to get the right level of oil in there, other wise it will be disaster. Put your bird in the pot and fill it with water until it covers the bird, take the bird out and mark the line where the water settles, that is your oil line. (This is key)You wouldn't believe how many porch fires happen down here on the "Redneck Riviera" because of skipping or misinterpreting that step. Stay close by once you are cooking to regulate the temp of the oil, other than that follow the cooking instructions that you will get with your fryer, makew sure your juices run clear when cutting, other wise you will get a visit from an old Italian guy, Sal....Sal Monella. It isn't hard and it is good. Enjoy.

Don't listen to these guys Pup. It's best accomplished in a closet with oily rags, my mother-in-law and some paint thinner cans.

Ham, lots of it!

The best part is that I don't have to do any of the cooking.

Good tips. Here's some more - make sure the bird is dry, especially in the cavity, before you lower into the oil. Also remember that if you have your oil at 350 and lower in the bird, the oil temp will drop immeadiately and take a while to increase. We ususally start at a higher temp. Use a deep fry thermometer and clip it to the side of the fryer. Use peanut oil (I guess everyone knows this?) Also, figure out how you are going to get the bird out before you put it in. Most fryers have a bsaket insert. Lastly - remove the pop up thermometer before frying!

Strongly disagree. More enjoyable when there is a certain (though manageable) element of danger.

Dude, his looks like backbone meat?

What is this Pinnekjøtt & aquavit stuff?

Aren't there any Americans here who slam down candy from stockings all morning and then pass out after roast turkey with all the trimmings? See alos. "A Christmas Story" before the Bumpas' dogs.

Lived in Norway for 3 years. Christmas was a fun time, and the locals seemed to put way more into the holiday food than the every day meals. Liked the pork ribs, passed on the lutefisk, though. Seeing the sun rise above the horizon about 10 degrees and then stay there for 5 hours before darkness came again was extremely depressing, however. Most ex-pats fled after our Thanksgiving (sidenote - ever have a turkey raised on fishmeal? not overly appealing) and did not return until mid January.

JB: Pinnekjøtt is smoked, salted, dried lamb ribs. Aquavit is a liquor made from potatoes, I believe. Really cuts through the lamb ribs, as they are extremely fatty/greasy.

mattvan: where at? My mom is from Bergen, and I've been there visiting family maybe 8 times or so. Love it there, although much more in the summer than the winter. Most beautiful country IMO.

Christmas Eve tradition is to have gumbo. Usually have one pot of each - chicken/andouille gumbo and seafood gumbo. Potato salad on the side. Eat early and then go out to watch the bonfires and fireworks on the levee.

Christmas Day is more middle of the road Thanksgiving-type meal. Turkey, ham, etc....

We're of Italian heritage and on Christmas Eve we have pasta with clam sauce. The sauce is a family recipe, a red sauce, that a cousin makes and it is outstanding. They also make what we call "dirty spaghetti" which is pasta with anchovies, which I don't eat, but the older relatives love it.

My moms side of the family it has been/ always will be Honey Baked Ham, kielbasa/w saurkraut, mashed potatoes, stuffed cabbage, homemade pierogi's.

My wife's side, the brother in law has done prime rib, lamb chops, ham, bone in ribeyes. It's a crap shoot every year. I've been recruited this year and we're talking about dry aging a strip loin and roasting that for dinner. We're also going to smoke a side of salmon.
Galley Boys are slop on top of a so-so burger and a bun you coulde get from a Covneninet food mart generic pack. They the Antoine Joubert of burgers; soft, sloppy, oozing grease and cheap sauce and extremely overrated by a biased fan base. Proof that if you throw enough cheap sauce shit on a burger you still can't overcome the lame burger. -JB

Stavanger. Oil field trash ;-) ;) :wink: My son was born in Norway, we will always have fond memories of the country and the people. Not so fond memories of $60 pizzas and Tau beer on draft at $4.00 a pint. Especially now with the dollar so weak, that is one expensive country.
