    Common in Oz, I gather.

    And why wouldn't you? They hsve the climate for it, and their seasons are the wrong way 'round so for them it's mid-summer.

    Good Point! I just can't see BBQ for Christmas here in Canada. Although now that I've said that I am sure some Canadian will say they BBQ every Christmas.

    Deep fried turkey with peanut oil is a favorite here in Texas but is a real pain for the designated chef.

    I enjoy the traditional Turkey Dinner with all the fixings.

    EDIT: I don't believe I have ever eaten deep fried turkey with peanut oil, bet that is very good.

    EDIT2: I was told they have deep friend Turkey over in Newfoundland on New Years Eve...not sure if it is done in peanut oil.

    I spent 12 winters in Canada.
    BBQ is not the first thing to come to mind.
