All the savor; none of the stress. Montgomery County abounds with options for takeout or dine-in Thanksgiving Dinner.

It’s common for the Thanksgiving holiday to become a spree for everyone but the chef.

He or she is often stuck in the kitchen while family chit-chat unfolds or family football games overtake the front lawn or events like the televised National Dog Show engages guests.

If Montgomery County meal preparers are ready to cede this chore over to area professionals and enjoy Thanksgiving Day for themselves, the area’s restaurateurs are ready.

The following recommendations represent the opportunity to purchase an entire Thanksgiving feast — or simply outsource some of its more time-consuming dishes.

Morgan’s Brooklyn Barbecue in King of Prussia Mall is famous for their low and slow smoked meats, is changing up their menu for the holiday, bringing Smoked Turkey Tails ($14) to the table this year, serving them over Tuscan kale with marinated figs, port wine reduction, and candied pecans.

For the traditionalists, Morgan’s is also offering Whole Smoked Turkey catering packages that serve 10–12, as well as a-la-carte specials (pie, anyone?).
