We've still got a couple weeks yet, but why not check out these recipes now and prepare yourself for the manliest Thanksgiving yet? The dinner menu features "a turkey smoked over sweet applewood and corncobs, ember-cooked potato packets..., a grilled fig and dried fruit chutney; and grilled green beans with shallots and hazelnuts."
The recipes were created by Ben Ford, chef at Ford's Filling Station in Los Angeles, and each recipe sounds incredible and relatively straightforward. There's even an alternate method for gas grills that still creates the smokey flavor. Oh and just to reiterate: Winter-Fruit. Chutney.
