Burnside Barbecue's Smoked TurkeyBurnside Barbecue is taking orders for smoked, fully cooked turkeys. Not only can you order standard turkeys ranging from 8-28 pounds, owner Phil Everett says you can also order “local, free range, Broad-breasted or Heritage Breed turkeys.” Want something a little different? They have smoked brisket on the menu too. And, if you’re looking for a Full Thanksgiving Turkey Dinner with Southern-style green beans, mashed potatoes and turkey gravy, you can pre-order those as well for $12/person. Pick up at Burnside on Thanksgiving day between 9am and Noon.

Custom cheese trays from Kent CheesemongerOne of the many benefits when shopping local is the relationship you build with a small business owner. Tim Sahr, owner of Kent Cheesemonger, is a fine example of a business owner you should grow to know. Not only can the Kent Cheesemonger build a custom cheese tray catered to your tastes, but they can provide all the wine, craft beer and mead for your Thanksgiving feast. Sahr hand selects every bottle of wine and cheese in the store and he’s extremely knowledgeable about the origins of everything in his shop. Sample some of their wines and cheeses at an upcoming Tasting Tuesday from 5-7pm.

Don’t forget the pie! Taproot Catering is having a Thanksgiving Pie Sale. Dutch Apple, Bourbon Pecan, Peanut Butter Chocolate, Pumpkin, and Rhubarb pies are all available for preorder. Pick up a growler or a pound of coffee from Scribbles, Bent Tree Coffee, or Tree City Coffee & Pastry to keep your guests caffeinated throughout the day. Tree City also has a fantastic selection of wines under $20!

From full Thanksgiving dinners to pies and pastries, Kent’s small businesses have amazing offers to help you through Thanksgiving – They’ll take a little work off your plate, and add a whole lot more.
