Keep it simple. Keep it metal.

Heavy Metal Thanksgiving Feast You Need This Year


With Thanksgiving just around the corner and me being a huge food enthusiast, I decided to prepare you a proper heavy metal Thanksgiving feast. It was super easy. I bought a turkey, threw it in the oven and roasted it for about two to three times the amount of recommended roasting time. Voila, I got an all black turkey that tasted awful, but it was black.
OK, joke aside. I decided to collect a bunch of black-ish recipes to make this year’s Thanksgiving black, dark and metal.
So, how to make a heavy metal Thanksgiving?
You could replace turkey with the Ayam Cemani chicken of Indonesia, which is all black, skin, bones and flesh. In my opinion I would not do that because the chick is freaking expansive and we still want to make Thanksgiving in a traditional turkey style.
This said, you can make (or buy) a slow-smoked turkey and with a proper glaze you can make it quite dark. I got this recipe from the website and it looks delicious.
