Perfect Smoked Turkey

Smoking a turkey is great because the flavor is awesome, but also because it frees up valuable oven space on what tends to be a hectic day. This recipe uses either a gas or charcoal grill.

Breads

While Paleo certainly isn’t known for bread, it’s not true that paleo bread options are bad. In fact, you’ll be surprised at how delicious these selections are.

Reminiscent of the classic Brazillian cheese bread, Pão de Queijo, without the cheese, these rolls are a satisfying replacement for typical dinner rolls that container grains and dairy.

Desserts

What’s Thanksgiving without dessert? These are a few of our family favorites, you’ll be sure to tie the meal together perfectly with these delicious dessert options.

Paleo Chocolate Pecan Pie

While this pie is our absolute favorite (so much so that I always make at least 2 each Thanksgiving), my favorite part is that the pecans are chopped. No meticulous placing of pecans over the top. Also, chocolate!
