The new Thanksgiving issue of the Serious Eats Magazine is out and available for download right now!
I've never met a serious eater who wasn't serious about Thanksgiving. And why not? Thanksgiving is an ode to the joys of pigging out. In fact, the holiday should come with an official license to pig out (we here at SEHQ will issue the licenses). And if you're going to pig out, you should do it in style, with all of the great Thanksgiving stories stuffed into our special Thanksgiving issue.
Inside, you'll get the rundown on whether or not to brine your bird, how to cook it (one word: spatchcocking), and what to serve alongside it. We'll also tell you what wines and beers to drink with your turkey—spatchcocked or otherwise—and how to make the perfect pumpkin pie to close out the holiday.
So happy turkey day, Serious Eaters! We wish you luck in preparing, cooking, and eating on the big day. If you haven't already subscribed to our monthly magazine, at the rate of $1.99 for a monthly subscription, or $19.99 for a year, please consider doing so. It's the easiest way to get all of our best stories in one beautifully-designed place. (By the way, you can still check out the charter Grilling: Steak issue of the magazine free of charge.)
And if you're in the throes of Thanksgiving madness, might I recommend popping over to our Thanksgiving Survival Guide? Chock-full of recipes, taste-tests, planning guides, and more, it has everything you need to make and eat the best Thanksgiving ever.
