Smoking Turkey

Time to start getting ready for Thanksgiving! Here is the first one of my Thanksgiving recipes, with more coming up. Enjoy!


This is not a mistake. It’s not smoked turkey; these are turkey cigars. You can’t smoke them, so you’ll have to eat them! They are pictured next to a real cigar, made by my husband’s boutique cigar company Senor Solomon Kosher Cigars. This unique cigar is 12 inches long, 70 gauge, and it’s called The Senor. Some jokers dubbed it Monica Lewinsky cigar, but let’s be family oriented here. I am not plugging my husband’s business; the company is temporarily on hold due to restructuring and expanding.

Most people are not aware of the technology of cigar making that involves fillers, flavoring, and all kinds of treatments. Those things do not present a problem during the rest of the year, but will render a cigar unfit for Passover use. My husband’s cigars are certified Kosher for Passover, which means Rabbinical supervision from the moment tobacco is harvested from a special section of the plantation to the sealed and stamped cigar in the box. Besides all that, they are delicious!
