Thanksgiving is one of the most traditional holidays in the United States, and it’s all about the food. With Thanksgiving only a few days away, you might be wondering what kind of meats to add to your Thanksgiving feast this year. Let us help you with that! This list features five unique meats you can use to take your Thanksgiving meal up a notch or two. All five of these meats are sure to be memorable additions to your feast this year. Check them out below!
1. Whole Turkey
This one is a no-brainer. Whole turkeys are a mainstay at Thanksgiving feasts, and they always attract a good bit of attention. The imagery of turkeys being plucked and eaten has become synonymous with the holiday, in large part due to the comfort that using turkey brings people. This is really one of the best ways to go since you have a large amount of meat available to you, meaning that you can cook up everything from turkey legs to boneless breast meat for your guests to enjoy.
2. Half Spiral Cut Ham
Speaking of spiral cuts, they are also a wonderful choice for your Thanksgiving dinner this year. Although ham can be a bit heavy and fatty, it is still a great choice for the holidays as it makes a hearty and delicious meal.
3. Rib Roast
Rib roast is another holiday favorite. The flavor and the tenderness of ribs can’t be beat, and when you consider the fact that they are a bit more expensive than other cuts of meat, they are a great choice as well. The rib roast is also a great choice for entertaining because it tends to stay tender even when it's cooked on high.
4. Best of Porter Road Box
If you want to go with a more convenient route, you can’t go wrong with the Best of Porter Road Box. This is a box filled with all of our best cuts, including bacon, ribs, sausage, pulled pork and wings. It’s a delicious way to enjoy Thanksgiving if you don’t have time for some home cooking.
5. Beef Stick Bundle
These meat sticks are a delicious way to bring variety to your Thanksgiving buffet. You can use them for appetizers, if you want something a bit more savory. Or, you can put a few on every plate and have everyone dig in for lunch.
