Help with wild turkey.
Advertisements [?]
Noooo, not that kind. :D

Full disclosure here, I've been a vegetarian for almost 20 years and I'm doing this for my boyfriend because I love him.
He won't take cooking tips from me because he has it in his head that I've never eaten anything besides Tofurky and Boca Burgers.

So anyhoo, his mom always buys a ham for Thanksgiving and, except for me, everyone else craves turkey.

He killed a tom last spring and there's still some left in the freezer, but it's tougher than my old combat boots.

I suggested he grill up the rest of the bird (and get it out of the freezer, bleh) and bring it with us.

Last time he grilled the meat he used italian dressing for a marinade. I suggested he use another vinegar based marinade, but this time, mix it with traditional Thanksgiving spices and herbs.

Sage is the big one, what else should he use?
