Turkey — and tradition — served at Joe Salem Thanksgiving Day Dinner – Riverside, California

Riverside, California 2021-11-25 17:15:58 –

By Thanksgiving sunset, the turkey leg scent was burned overnight under the watchful supervision of the Pitmaster and was rich enough to reach the surrounding streets.

Five volunteers appeared at 10 pm the day before and tended to take charge of about 560 legs. The bird’s final destination was set to serve hundreds of dishes at the Joe Salem Thanksgiving Dinner.

In honor of the late Joe Salem, a philanthropist and owner of a downtown jewelery store, this event is a staple of the community and offers families a regular holiday menu for free.

The portrait of Joe Salem was placed on the easel before the 78th Thanksgiving meal on Thursday, November 25, 2021. The organization provided over 500 meals.

Correct turkey legs mean that they start late the night before, and all night time is dedicated to “keeping moist, spraying, and maintaining heat.”

“That’s most of the work there,” he said. “Food the fire.”

Supper is a tradition for many families, but it is also a tradition for some volunteers, sometimes dating back to decades.
