One fish, two fish, red fish, dinner.

Chef Brandon McGlamery of Luma on the Park and the soon-to-open Prato in Winter Park, Florida, has reeled in five enticing preparations for today's catch.

We love it when sites we dig do extra-smart stuff, so we were thrilled when our pals at Chow.com offered us a sneak preview of the 2011 edition of The Chow 13, going live tonight.

Last year, the site honored sumptuously profane Twittervixen Ruth Bourdain, heirloom vegetable evangelist Chef Sean Brock, and bad-ass Brooklyn butcher Tom Mylan.

This year's list will post later today, but we're thrilled to announce that our friend Eddie Huang has made the cut this year. He's co-hosted one of our Secret Suppers and graced the pages of Eatocracy with musings on cultural identity, food writers, late-night meals, Four Loko, Tiger Moms and lessons learned from a zero-star New York Times review.

Here's why Chow digs Eddie Huang as a chef using social media smartly:

Stocking up for the big day

With Thanksgiving approaching, you've still got a tad of time on your side. Use it to wrangle your guest list into place (leaving room for a few day-of tag-alongs), stock up, and keep from getting your feathers all ruffled in a last-second scramble for plates, drinks, turkey and places to sit.

The Bird

If you've got a rough idea of how many meat-eating guests will be on hand, go with around one pound per person - one and a half if you'd like to ensure a stash of leftovers. A huge bird can be comically unwieldy, so consider sacrificing the Big Platter Presentation for the sake of sanity and back strain. Opt for two (or three or more if you have the oven space) smaller birds - and just remember to make sure you've got enough roasting pans, foil and other poultry paraphernalia on hand.
