Thanksgiving Autopsy cover
Thanksgiving is over, happened and done but BBQ parts are still in the mail. We smoked the turkey.

Welcome to What’s The Matter With Me? Podcast S6, Ep. 43 “Thanksgiving Autopsy”

In this episode, it finally happened. Thanksgiving is over and it went fairly well after all, even though the rotisserie parts never arrived. We adjusted more or less successfully by smoking the turkeys. It took a little longer because of the slower cooking method, but it was tasty, and we had enough appetizers to tide everyone over until the food was ready. Let’s conduct the Thanksgiving Autopsy in order to find out what really happened.

Let’s conduct a Thanksgiving Autopsy

  • Thanksgiving is happening, in fact it happened. We made a lot of stuff.
  • We smoked the Turkey because we didn’t get parts in time, and it took quite a while, because smoking is a slow method of cooking. It tasted okay but it wasn’t quite what I was going for. Next year, I want to get the bird on thte table around 1 P.M.


  • I applied for a job.

In this episode, I’m getting ready for Thanksgiving, roasting chickens, buying barbecue parts, checking out tactical wallets, and more.

The turkey order’s in, and I ordered two. We’re going to use the rotisserie. I had pretty eyes at the Halloween party

Welcome to “Turkey Order” on the What’s The Matter With Me? Podcast

In this episode, I put in the turkey order at the butcher shop. This year, we’re having Thanksgiving at the house again, and we’re planning to cook the turkey on the rotisserie. I ordered two smaller birds instead of one big one, and I’m hoping it’ll be more manageable that way. Also in this episode, we went to a Halloween party where my wife made me up like a beautiful woman, but not the one I was expecting. Meanwhile, Christina Applegate was diagnosed with MS, and we read about it in the newspaper.
