Fail #8: No Backup Plan
"One year I was smoking my turkey and accidentally spilled wine into the charcoal pan, and ash went flying everywhere! The turkey was fine, but the liquid in the pan was ruined — I couldn't use it to make gravy. I used chicken stock instead and made the gravy without any drippings — put in enough mushrooms and your gravy will always be a success!" -duonyte
Our Tip: Keep a few jars of pre-made gravy and a box of stuffing on hand in case disaster strikes!
