They do turkey right!

Whether you're a guest or cook, everyone shares some sort of frustration on Turkey Day. Cooking deadlines, family arguments disagreements and whatever else ails you make the holiday about as fun as standing in line at the DMV without an appointment. So take back some control! We're not proposing that you go out to eat, but having someone else make the mess in their own kitchen. Try one of these suggestions on for size (Note: Many of these have deadlines, so hurry up!).

1. Smoqued BBQ

Meaty goodness rules the menu at Smoqued, so why not take some home? Chef Robert Setina has a 13-pound turkey for $56, and an even bigger ham for $75. We noticed a fancy chambord cranberry sauce and Grandma's stuffing with bacon and water chestnuts. The deadline to place an order is TODAY, so use your phone for more than Instagram and call them at (714) 633-7427.

2. Provisions Market

Wanting more of a complete plate? The gang across the street has got you covered. For $30, you can select a protein, side and pie for dinner. Having to decide between prime rib and duck is the kind of dilemma we want to have. In addition to taters three ways, consider some Haven-style mac and cheese or Brussels sprouts. Like their smoky neighbors, ordering closes today, so submit requests to
