This is absolute fun. We got the standard tour and history of Southfork and then were transported to a remote site with a real Chuckwagon set up. The food was absolutely true Texas. crock pot beef brisket cooked on a campfire, ribs, cole slaw, campfire biscuits, and the best Strawberry Cobbler I have ever eaten. They cooked everything just like in the days of the cowboys.



For your meal with family and/or friends, if you'd rather not cook but you still want a traditional meal, Ted's Montana Grill, 122 Luckie St in Atlanta and various metro Atlanta locations, offers a full traditional Thanksgiving dinner, with turkey, dressing, vegetables, and cranberry sauce, for less than $15 a person. And if you want a less traditional dinner, you can substitute the famous bison or beef joint for turkey! Many of the more upscale restaurants are also open, with prices ranging from $45-$60 per person.

Those who are not fruit and vegetable people may opt to include egg and poultry in their diet instead of pork and beef meat. White meat is healthier as it does not contain too much fat. However, people need to abstain from eating the skin part of the chicken if they would like to avoid the fatty part. People may also eat lots of fibrous foods like oat and legumes. They may feel full for a longer period of time thus preventing them from craving for something to eat. They may also include almonds, hazelnuts and other nuts in their diet so that their bodies may get the good kind of fat for better body system functioning.

Tofu - A study at Louisiana State University tested it against chicken as a pre-meal appetizer for obese women. The result was that the women who had tofu ate less food during the meal. This smoked pulled brisket because the innocent looking tofu is an appetite suppressing protein. Now you know why Asians, such as the Japanese and Chinese are generally not overweight because humble tofu forms an important part of their diet.

Once your brisket is done, it is time to enjoy the fruits of your labor. Remove the brisket from the grill and carve it into medium slices. Let it cool for about 10 to 15 minutes and serve with a smothering of hot sauce.
