Help! I date someone from Texas who wants brisket for Thanksgiving. Should I make turkey?

Is it just the two of you? If so why not? Go for something different this year! This would make a delightful main:

If there are more people joining you who expect the traditional, maybe ask your significant other if they'd be willing to forgo their preference just this time. Have you brined a bird already? If not, this one can go right in the oven:

Do you want to keep dating this person?
Is there a middle ground?

Or, is the brisket just so culturally dissonant for you for Thanksgiving?

I think I'll continue dating him. Made turkey but allowed for one full hour of country music. Fair, right ?
