bookofjoe's Favorite Thing: Greenberg's Smoked Turkey

Screen Shot 2012-11-12 at 4.27.37 PM

I ordered my first a long, long time ago in a century far away, after reading a New York Times Holiday Food by Mail article authored by either Molly O'Neill — remember her? A great, great food writer when the Times Dining Section ruled the paper... but I digress — or Florence Fabricant.

The long and the short of it was that this turkey was ethereal, so great that that the Times evaluators pretty much licked the carcass after picking it clean.

They weren't exaggerating.

Mine arrives this week: Where does it say you have to wait till Thanksgiving?

Gray Cat and I will be very closely watching our perimeter for the UPS truck starting tomorrow.

Quite honestly that bird tastes like it's been dragged through a house fire, dry and over salted as well.

Thinking about Molly's prodigious output and the sorry state of my hometown's fabled Coney Island post hurricane Sandy, I thought it fitting and proper to post this link to one of Molly's best holiday indulgences: http://www.cookstr.com/recipes/coney-island-fudge

It was Molly. The only person to come close to the standard set by Craig Claiborne (Food Editor & Restaurant Critic from 1957-1986).
