1. I don't think it will ever replace the turkey, but that really sounds good.

2. Sounds pretty good.

I'm still having a turkey, though.

3. I'd probably like it! I like the sides/veggies part of a traditional

Thanksgiving meal best anyway.

4. Turkey really doesn't have much flavor

It's just a huge bird that feeds a whole lot of people.

"All the trimmings" are what make the dinner. The bird is just flavorless protein unless it's doctored up with pan gravy, cranberry sauce, and good sides.

7. It's the nature of the bird, my dear.

It's bland as chalk. Try eating a plain one sometime.

However, it can be used as a substitution for things like veal and pork. It does so very successfully since it takes on the flavor of whatever it's in.

8. Maybe you're on to something there - I've always been able to get

fresh local turkeys rather than the factory farmed variety.

9. Fresh wild turkeys or

fresh local small farm turkey have a lot of flavor. I make a paste out of butter and fresh chopped herbs and rub it in underneath the skin.

Even if you have to buy a supermarket turkey, you can impart a lot of flavor by brining it.
