Frontier Room Keeps Thanksgiving in Seattle Smoking Hot

Local BBQ Favorite Dishes Up Dine-in and Take-out Options, Including a Delicious Southern-style Holiday Meal Serving Eight for Less Than $200

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - November 5, 2007) - There'll be no shortage of tryptophan this year! In response to one of the perennial questions of the holiday season - - how to spice up everyone's favorite meal, Frontier Room offers several options to jolt Seattleites out of their Thanksgiving rut. Turkey loving locals can dine at the restaurant or pick up a complete holiday meal, or even make reservations to cook their bird in one of the Northwest's only Southern Pride® Smokers.

"Thanksgiving is one of our favorite holidays here at Frontier Room," said Frontier Room co-owner Robert Eickhof. "We love sharing our Southern-style traditions with our friends and family, especially our signature smoked turkey. Once you enjoy our smoked turkey for Thanksgiving, you'll never want to celebrate the holiday without it!"

Frontier Room's special Thanksgiving turkey dinner will be served alongside their regular menu on Thursday, November 22 from 4-10 p.m. One of the few restaurants open on Thanksgiving Day, Frontier Room's feast includes succulent smoked turkey and all the traditional trappings, including mashed potatoes and gravy, cornbread dressing, baked carrots, green bean casserole, homemade cranberry sauce and pecan pie.

For those seeking less traditional fare, Frontier Room's regular menu includes barbeque favorites such as St. Louis Ribs and Pulled Pork, as well as an abundance of side dishes. Favorite sides include Snappy Coleslaw, crispy Hush Puppies and Down Home Greens -- all of which can be ordered alongside Frontier Room's smoked turkey for a Southern-style holiday feast. For those with a sweet tooth, a selection of desserts is available; choices range from Ariel's Pecan Pie and Apple Crisp à la Mode to Fresh Fruit Cobbler and Root Beer Floats. Their drink menu includes a variety of festive cocktails, draft beers and fine wines.

In addition to offering dine-in options, Frontier Room will also liberate frazzled cooks from the bonds of the kitchen this year. Take-out turkeys can be ordered as part of a full Thanksgiving meal or on their own. The complete meal serves eight and includes a 12-14 pound turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, cornbread dressing, baked carrots, green bean casserole, homemade cranberry sauce and pecan pie -- all for $175 plus tax. The stand-alone Frontier Turkey option is $75 plus tax, and also includes a 12-14 pound smoked turkey. For those who prefer to choose their own bird, Frontier Room is taking reservations for space in their smoker; interested Seattleites can bring their turkey to Frontier Room and have it smoked for only $2.50 per pound.

Frontier Room's barbeque pit master, Aaron Benson, will smoke all turkeys in the restaurant's signature Southern Pride Smoker. Orders must be placed with Marilynn at 206-956-7427 by November 19 (the Monday before Thanksgiving) to reserve space. Turkey pick-ups can be made on either Wednesday, November 21 or Thursday, November 22.
