Neighborhood Expert: Best Thanksgiving hack?

I recently shared that one of the hacks my family employs during Thanksgiving is to get a turkey spatchcocked (less amusingly called a butterflied turkey), which means getting the backboned removed.

It lays flat and cooks in less than 2 hours thanks to Alton Brown. So my question for you this week is this: what’s your favorite hack to make it easier? Prepared foods, favorite dessert to pick up, easy side dish? Please share with me and I’ll compile a list to share with our readers!
