The leaves have really turned here, and they are dumping off the trees. Any high-traffic entry is strewn with red and yellow folliage that came in on the soles of our shoes. Now that Halloween has officially come and gone, we can start talking about Thanksgiving and Turkey Tracker in earnest. Forget Christmas, November is really the most wonderful time of the year.
This year is looking to be an excellent event. We’re expecting 12 people for dinner, with the possibility of a couple more showing up for dessert or appetizers earlier or later in the day. We’re going to be getting the menu together soon too, so we know what everyone is up to, and we’ll share that with you all.
We’ve got the hardware figured out, and the website is ready to go. Next I need to get the camera location planned and ensure that we have everything set for a stable network connection for the laptops that drive the show. This year, I’m hoping to setup a second camera directly above the smoker, that we can cut to when we lift the lid for action shots of the bird.
