How to cook a turkey…in Different areas of the United States

Posted by

Google Trends is a great place to go to find out what Americans are interested in.  The treasure trove of data via search is immeasurable for companies big and small.  I popped on there this morning to look at the most searched Thanksgiving related items.

I thought this chart was interesting.  The vast majority of the U.S. smokes their Thanksgiving Turkey.  I grew up in Michigan and moved to MD but we still roast our turkeys.  I have always wanted to try frying a turkey however like a large number of Marylanders do.

Additionally, here is a Trends chart of the most searched for Thanksgiving recipes.  Green bean casserole is one of my favorites.  Apparently, others like it too…or just can’t ever remember how to make it.  Tip:  its always on the back of the fried onion can!

Lastly,  searches for “Friendsgiving” are significantly on the rise since 2010.  Not sure exactly what to make of this trend but it is interesting…

Enjoy the time with your family and friends.  Happy Thanksgiving friends!
