What are you/is your family having for Christmas Dinner?

I'm smoking a Brisket and roasting a Duck [maybe rotisserie].

Our Thanksgiving turkey was simply fantastic this year so it will be hard to try something different. We are thinking about scaling down our turkey so fewer leftovers and then during the long weekend leading up to New Years picking out something new to smoke on the grill. I'm not sure what that will be yet but if I can't convince myself to try grilling something new like duck or cornish hens then we do have hog left in the freezer.

Just a suggestion on the leftover turkey. I usually get the biggest turkey my limited cooking facilities can handle. I put the leftovers in smaller containers and cover all the meat with the cooking juices. The smaller packages will keep almost indefinitely in the freezer. I reheat the package in the microwave for a quick turkey sandwich whenever I like. And then the house smells really good allover again.

That is a good point Farmer Jake. We have not tried freezing single servings of turkey. In the past we pick out what we don't think we will eat and freeze the rest all in one bag, which usually results in kids picking at it and the leftovers become leftovers once again.
