Your Best Thanksgiving Bird You Ever Had was?

Our DS has invited us to his new home (first time homeowner) for Thanksgiving. Color me incredibly happy - he is deep frying a Turkey. uhhhhh, I've heard stories about these birds.
As memory serves me, The Best Thanksgiving Bird I can remember eating, was at my grandmothers house, she baked it slowly and there was cheesecloth over it. There was nothing to compare with that beautiful golden skin, the smell that seemed to be everywhere in their home and how moist the turkey was.
As memories serve all of us at this time of year....I pose the gratitude of those of my ancestors who taught me the traditions of cooking holiday meals...
what was/is the best Thanksgiving've ever had? or close to it. This should be fun.
By far the best one we've had was the Thanksgiving before last after our then 10 year old granddaughter had successful open heart turkey! It could have been a bologna sandwich and it still would have been the best. Actually, the turkey was deep fried and lightly barbecued by one of our son-in-laws.

One of the best I ever had was barbequed in a trash can out back. Some clever military guys discovered this on a deployment some years back, and a few years ago I went to one of their homes for incredibly good, and apparently easy to do, but you do lose the house full of turkey smell.
We usually took turns during the holidays visiting my grandparents. A number of years ago we were visiting and it happened that my grandmother cooked the turkey. She wrapped the turkey up in bacon, then the oven did the work. Our turkey roasted for 3 hours, and she removed it when the thigh meat read 160 on a thermometer. With bacon and a bevy of herbs -- not to mention the onions and apples inside the bird -- this turkey is anything but one-dimensional in flavor.

er dancers that I met from New York (if you are referring to New York City) that there is quite a large swing dancing scene there, but they were all lindy hoppers. But I'd imagine West Coast and East Coast swing would be just as popular.
