Holiday Meals Made Easy with Burgers’ Smokehouse

In partnership with Burgers' Smokehouse + City Moms Blog Network, we are so excited to share with you how Burgers' Smokehouse can save you time this holiday season.

Have you ever cooked a turkey in less than an hour and a half? Have you ever cooked an ENTIRE holiday meal, in the same amount of time? Before recently, I didn’t even think it was possible. I grew up watching my Mom hovering in front of a hot stove for hours in preparation of any family dinner. All day long she’d be in and out of the kitchen while her guests would relax and have fun. Since slaving away in the kitchen and missing out on a good time isn’t really my scene, I jumped at the chance to give one of the holiday meals from Burgers’ Smokehouse a try. 

Burgers’ offers a wide variety of smoked meats, side dishes and desserts to choose from. They’re a family-owned company that’s been serving hickory smoking meats since 1927. Despite never having a Smoked Turkey before, I knew based on the heritage of the brand alone, that we’d be in for a treat. The hardest part was choosing what to serve.

We ended up ordering the full Smoked Turkey Meal, and honestly, I started seeing the benefits to placing an order almost immediately. I didn’t have to wait in the long grocery lines or navigate busy parking lots to shop with two kids in tow. Instead, I had a fully cooked and perfectly smoked turkey with sides delivered right to my front door.

We received a 9 lb Smoked Turkey, Broccoli and Cheese Casserole, Sweet Potato Casserole, and a Pecan Pie. The packages arrived with easy to follow instructions for each dish. Once thawed, I foil wrapped the turkey and popped it in the oven for an hour and a half. While it was heating up, I plated and heated the side dishes and pie. In just under two hours I had two hot side dishes, a perfectly tender turkey, and dessert on the table.

Everyone loved the turkey. If you’ve never had a Smoked Turkey before, I can’t recommend it enough. The smokiness of the meat added the perfect amount of flavor. What didn’t get eaten at the dinner table was saved for some of the most delicious turkey sandwiches the following day. In addition to the main event, the side dishes were equally enjoyed. My daughter went crazy for the sweet potato casserole (a perfect dish for her practicing her spoon skills). My son went crazy for the pecan pie. 

I can happily say that placing an order with Burgers’ Smokehouse was the best choice for helping to alleviate a little bit of holiday stress this year. Between watching after one young toddler, a preschooler, a household, and running my own small business, I will gladly take any help I can get.
