  • To be fair, Spatchcocking Turkey really didn't catch on until Alton Brown's Good Eats episode Countdown to T day aired on November 15, 2013.

  • Roasting a turkey is not difficult, actually. Thaw, clean (they come with all the organs in a bag now, so it's simple), rub butter/oil/herbs on _and under_ the skin, then put in oven. Then wait. That's it. Take out of oven, cover loosely in foil for one hour, then eat. It almost can't get easier.

    racewiththefalcons1racewiththefalcons113 kun oldin
    • @Ravenclaw That is not what basting does. The butter and oil rub is what will brown the skin. Opening your oven unnecessarily in the middle of cooking has no positive effect on roasting a turkey.

    • You need to baste it though Otherwise you can’t get the crispy beautiful dark golden brown skin

  • In my house, we always used turkey bags. The plastic bag keeps the moisture on the turkey and you just forget about it and take it out of the oven 5 hours later.

    matthew durettematthew durette14 kun oldin
  • You could take it a step further and completely debone the turkey and grill it on charcoal or propane. Turns out real well provided meat is cut to the right thickness I say no more than one to two inches thick. My dad despises turkey he loved it. We also do a unique soak for about a hour to three can be done in a single day with out the lengthy brine. Lightly coat in butter Use two to three shakes of each Use soy sauce teriyaki sauce Worcester sauce hickory and mesquie liquid smoke (Note on the smokes:just a cap of each a small overflow is okay but no more than the cap is needed.) Add a coating to taste(I do three shakes of container in a circle or three pinches if in jars again circle) of Greek seasoning accent garlic and onion powder all seasoned salt(optional I found but original rep called for it) rosemary( just a shake over each peice) dill weed and parcley flakes(three shakes of each) try it cook till golden i want to see which way is quicker so you can do this again and have two turkeys as business expenses again matpat 😆
