A while back, Junior and David tried cooking a turkey in a pit. It worked so well that they decided to do it again at the French Quarter on the 19th of January (yesterday) which was the night of the full moon. They invited about 35 people to the party then realized that one turkey would not feed that many people so they bought a 28 lb. ham to go with it.
Dave and Junior went out to the FQ around 6:00 in the morning to get the fire going in the pit and start cooking the turkey and ham.
We went out there around 2:00 so we could get a parking spot. There were already several people there sitting around the lingerie tree which is the only shade.
When we arrived you could already smell the meat cooking. Yummm!
At around 4:00 they removed the Ham.
About a half hour later they removed the turkey.
There was a plethora of food; hot veggies, several salads, and desert’s besides the turkey and ham.
The meat came out perfect and we all ate until we could eat no more.
After stuffing our selves we sat around a bonfire, groaning, telling stories and joking
until the moon came up.
After the moon rise every one except the usual suspects headed for home.
We stayed to enjoy the fire until it had burned down to just coals.
The feast was a complete success.
Today, Patti went on another casino bus trip to the Phoenix area.
