EVERYTHING U Knead 2 No About Cooking Turkeys!

Serious Eats has compiled an Encyclopedia of Information about all the facets of cooking a Turkey.
If you can't find what you Knead 2 No here, I suggest you donate your Turkey to the Salvation Army and go to Waffle House for Thanksgiving Dinner!

    I'm a Serious Eats subscriber as well and I totally agree with the recommendation in the above link for spatchcocking the bird.
    Presenting the whole bird to me is as old as Norman Rockwell's iconic Saturday Evening Post Thanksgiving magazine cover.

    I'm cooking the bird whole, otherwise where would you put the stuffing?  I always get a nice crispy skin and juicy breast meat.....I learned from my mother who cooked Thanksgiving dinner every year for over 50 years!

    Al, try it first with a 3-4lb chicken. I think you'll be surprised just how well spatchcocking a bird works. I do mine in a large pre-heated cast iron pan.
    I'll brown the chicken skin side down on the stove top and then turn the bird over meat side down and then pop the pan in a pre-heated oven.
