    What is the usual main dish for everyone at Christmas? Seems like the favorites are ham or turkey, but do you eat something else?

    I normally cook a sweet ham for Christmas, but this year since my husband and I both got turkeys from our employers, we will probably do a turkey or deer of some form.

    The last couple years, I've taken over the duty of Christmas dinner. Deep frying a turkey has been a big hit at my house over doing the turkey in the oven. It gives my wife a break and we both enjoy the turkey this way.

    I didn’t get enough fried turkey on thanksgiving. Cooked it with my normal Cajun ejection I use but I added a stick of melted butter to my mix. Made it much better.
    I use Adams Cajun seasoning; add a little Tabasco sauce, Whoshire, garlic m black pepper and water with a stick of real butter. Heat up mix, and eject the turkey full of it then shake Cajun all over outside and inside of bird. Deep fry. Dang thing is good.
    Same thing for Christmas. Plus a big ham cooking over pecan wood. I actually wanted to smoke the bird this time but everyone said no way, my fried bird is much better. LOL
    All the trimmings . everyone will bring something. We having 12 to 15 people and probably a few others will come by later to watch football.
    I’m so dang hungry for tomorrow I want to cook it now.

    Fried turkey for us. I love to fry turkeys for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I cooked 8 for Thanksgiving and will do a couple for Christmas. I may even smoke a few (turkeys) for my neighbors.
