We do a small get-together at our house Wednesday night for drinks and appetizers and I put a pork shoulder on the smoker that we'll take to the folks' place the next day, to use with my sis-in-law's famous handmade tortillas and salsa for tacos in the morning (with the proper beverages of course!).
They have a rotisserie pit out there so we roast a whole lamb throughout the afternoon (while enjoying the proper beverages of course!) and serve it along with the more traditional turkey & ham-type stuff for dinner.
It's basically a three-day long Armenian/Irish/Scandinavian party! And that's not including the German and Mexican neighbors that stop by to share their many foods and drinks...
Then the weekend hits and it's time to recover and put up Christmas lights LOL
