    And you call them steamed hams despite the fact that they are obviously grilled?

    I tossed together some simple dough to make rolls on Thursday. Just gonna let it rise one time then punch it down and rest it in the fridge until Wednesday where I'll take and weigh out rolls of it and put them on a tray that I can take and pop in the oven right out of the fridge the next day.

    How much would one roll weigh anyway? An oz? 2?

    I do not know why you are given to assume that Marylanders came up with the name.

    If I'm wet brining a 13 lb turkey, when should I start the brine bath? I bought it on Friday evening and it's been slowly defrosting in my fridge since, so I was figuring starting Wednesday night.

    When you get 2 tacos from Taco Bell and 6-piece nuggets from McDonalds, that's called a North Dakota

    I have never been to North Dakota but I made that up so it's definitely a real thing

    So, I got a big turkey breast to cook for Thanksgiving, and am considering looking for a big brining tub to use for it (and in the future). am probably gonna make a stuffed turkey breast (with apples, nuts, and soft cheese), like I did some years back.

    Trying to nail down what else to make.

    I got some brussels sprouts and broccoli to roast, and I got some russet potatoes and sweet potatoes. Probably gonna mash the former and roast the latter.

    And then I was thinking of making like, chana masala (chickpea curry) as a contrasting side dish (and get a bit more protien in the meal).

    I think that'll be enough for me and my brother.

    48-72 hours is ideal. Start it Tuesday AM if you can.

    That might depend on your brine, what kind of concentrations of things are you using MegaMan?? We tend to brine for around 15ish hours and that's just fine, I can't imagine brining for 72.

    Last time I did it I used Alton Brown's instructions. Though last year I did the Serious Eats dry brine with salt / baking soda. I'm doing that again because it's so much easier and doesn't require a massive bucket of chicken juice.

    I became familiar with the term 'chicken maryland' in regards to butchery from watching Masterchef Australia, so it might just be a regional terminology, which seems to be backed up by this one sentence that agrees with me on Wikipedia.

    also looks like the other is sometimes called "airline chicken"

    Yeah I was gonna say it's probably just a regional difference, which is a cool thing to learn about, not bad or wrong

    For example calling McDonald's "Maccas" is 100% better and more fun than saying "McDonald's" or "Mickey D's"

    I'm legitimately excited to learn that Australians have a Maryland-based term for poultry cuts that most Americans have never heard of. Especially since if you asked a random sample of Americans to name all fifty states, Maryland would absolutely be on the wrong side of the awkward ellipsis in the series, almost certainly in the bottom ten states that people think about.

    Language is neat and weird, and food language is at least doubly so.

    Boston Pizza is a Canadian pizza chain that does not make the style of pizza most common in Boston.

    I once tried to name all fifty States from memory.

    I started and Maine and went south then west. Which was probably a mistake since I kept getting caught up on Delaware and Rhode island.

    Just got out a piece of paper and made it to 43 States

    So I misplaced 7 whole states in my brain somewhere

    Every year we watch some of the Friends Thanksgiving episodes and Ross repeatedly failing to name all 50 states is probably my favorite bit out of any of them. Every year my wife and I say we're going to try and we never do, this might have to be the year.

    I will probably take a day-break from my vegetarianism for this.

    Depends on if the stuffing is made with meat.

    Also depends if I am seduced by a ham.

    I can name all 50 states in alphabetical order thanks to the song we learned in grade school. I don't know a song for the capitals so I can only name a handful of those, and most that I remember are probably wrong.

    This year I'm making Gnocchi Parisienne the way my mom makes them: very light and fluffy and large, with some cheese sauce alongside some veggies. Then the next day I'm making some pasta with lemon/white wine sauce.

    I gotta say I never liked a turkey main even when I was eating meat. I don't hate turkey, it tastes fine. But if I'm doing a large meat main that takes effort I'd rather do several roast chickens, or a beef wellington, or a ham, or a pork loin, or a flank steak or something. I've had people who are great at making a turkey make a turkey for Thanksgiving and I still go for seconds on the mashed potatoes or stuffing first.
