Special Turkey Gravy
Despite the fact that I have not yet tried this recipe, I rate it as 5 stars because of the order in which the ingredients are added and cooked. Making the roux from the fat drippings and an equal amount of flour uses all the flavor the turkey fat has to offer while including the flavor of the browned flour. Then by scraping up the fond from the turkey roasting pan with the stock and adding that liquid, you bump the turkey flavor up to the maximum possible. Then continuing to add more stock or water while stirring/cooking on the stovetop will allow you to control just the right amount of thickening that is needed. If you end up making too much gravy, just freeze the excess.

Prize Winning Baby Back Ribs
Superb recipe and method of grilling. It provides the perfect tenderness and maximum "rib flavor" without the usual overcooking of the ribs till the bones fall out. Suggestion: I don't find it necessary to remove the lower membrane as it serves to protect the slab from overcooking when I push a few coals directly under the slab before closing the lid. A little bit of "direct" heat adds to the overall flavor. Also, I find that after one hour, cutting the slab into individual ribs and tossing them in the sauce in a wide metal pan (with a bit of extra rub sprinkled on top, and then heating the open pan for 5-10 minutes on the grill (covered) really brings the spices, sauce and ribs together...and makes them so easy to serve... mmmmmmm

Homemade Shake and Bake Mixture
With a few "tweeks" I think I made it even better. Just substitute a tsp celery seed and a tsp of granulated garlic for the two "salt "versions and a tsp of onion powder for the minced onion. Also, add a teaspoon or two of poultry seasoning in place of the basil, parsley and oregano. Bake at 375 deg for one hour, removing the breast pieces at the 45 minute mark. I also used Italian bread crumbs. Thanks for the recipe.
