Why Should I Have My Thanksgiving Meal Delivered?

Let’s face it: hosting Thanksgiving may sound fun, but it’s a LOT of work. The Thanksgiving turkey is stressful, beginning with the battle royale in the grocery store for that last turkey, and sometimes (knock on wood) ending with it being tragically burned in the oven. Instead of a horror story, look into having a Thanksgiving dinner delivered right to your doorstep, with simple cooking instructions that will ensure a tasty turkey and succulent side dishes. Check out our meal ideas and pairings below for three full-sized and delicious Thanksgiving options that will leave you less stressed, and give you more time with your family.

Thanksgiving Meal Idea 1: Honey Turkey with Broccoli Cheese & Rice Side

When choosing a delivered turkey, you want to make sure you’re not sacrificing quality for an easy fix. Burger’s Smokehouse has been handling meats since the 1920’s, so you know you’re getting a high quality turkey. Their honey roasted turkey is a delicious delight that holds its own on any dinner table. Honey and brown sugar provide a sweet, tasty meat that is complimented best with delicious cheesy broccoli and rice.

Wine Pairing Hack: For a rich meal like this, bring in an aromatoc white like a dry Riesling that’s lightness will contrast perfectly with the meal.

Thanksgiving Meal Idea 2: Hickory Smoked Turkey with Cranberry Sauce and Cornbread Dressing

Adding a unique touch can be all it takes to transform your Thanksgiving meal from special to something magical. A smoked turkey is a cool way to jazz up your Thanksgiving dinner. We take a turkey, cure it, then smoke it with real Hickory wood for a subtle, smoky taste and beautiful pink color. With its smooth, sophisticated flavor, this meat is paired best with something tart, so buy some cranberry sauce and delicious cornbread dressing for a dinner that is unique, but undeniably festive.

Wine Pairing Hack: The smoky subtleties of this meal are perfect for a lighter red. Consider a nice Pinot Noir for a birght tart flavor
