Add the ability for us to easily see who has paid up on a past due invoice so we can manually review and remove past due flags from their account if applicable.
Add the ability to mark orders as "uncollectible/closed" if we don't expect to ever receive payment (the exact criteria for deciding that is TBD). This data would need to sync up with our other tools like reports, Tableau and QB to ensure everything balances correctly.

Where To Buy Smoked Turkey

For this recipe, we start with a pre-cooked, smoked turkey breast from Southside Market. You can heat it in the oven or even in the microwave.

But we decided to go all in for the ultimate smoky flavor and heat it on our smoker. This method is quick, easy, and produces delicious results every time.

We like using the Southside Market turkey for a few reasons. First, it’s high-quality all-white meat (which is my personal favorite).

It’s also pre-cooked which cuts way down on the cooking time. And finally, it is already smoked and seasoned with a delicious peppery rub so you know the flavor is going to be spot on.
