Gobble up this week’s show.  Marty Van Ness, one of the Butterball Turkey experts, joins Jim, David and Visit Bloomington’s Julie Warren for a Thanksgiving 101 – cooking the turkey, what to do with the giblets and how to carve the bird like an expert.  If you have last-minute questions on turkey, you can speak with Marty or one of the experts at 1-800-BUTTERBALL (or use their social media links for information as well).

Later in the show Julie has great information about some of the exciting activities taking place around Bloomington and Monroe County.  Check out the Visit Bloomington website and their holiday blog for all the spots to shop, eat and enjoy with your family.

Tonight Jim has James Douglas from DADZ BBQ in Loogootee in the studio.  While November may not be barbeque season, many people don’t bake their Thanksgiving turkey, they smoke ‘em — and James has some tips to help you out before the family comes to town.

Don’t forget that November 21 we welcome the Butterball Turkey experts to the show.  Got a question – comment here, or email jim@wgclradio.com with your turkey concerns!
