Turkey

Have you see the new way to cook a turkey?  You cut out the backbone with a kitchen shears and splay it out on a rack that is above a baking pan. Rub a bunch of butter inside between the skin and the meat. Cook it for an hour and a half.  It is called a spatchcocked turkey…maybe I am watching The Food Network too much.  It is supposed to be a real juicy turkey.

Run for your lives!!!

Tomorrow I might have a snow report.  The weather people have gone nuts…12–15 inches, 2-4 inches, 6-12 inches…they are all over the place with their predictions.  I have one prediction it will be colder and somewhat white.

  2. The turkey sounds intriguing, but keep that snow on your side of the country!

  3. What an odd way to cook a turkey. The weather gurus are predicting the white stuff here also but not as much as yours. Sure hope they are wrong. Have a great weekend.

  4. It's turned cold here, but the snow is staying in the mountains where it belongs. Yes, turkeys, run! :-)

  5. Connie, I haven't done that with a turkey, but have done it with a roasting chicken. It certainly is moist and evenly cooked. I just looked at the Park Rapids webcam; it appears you will have a snow report..ugh, that means it is headed in our direction. This warm November has been lovely. Happy Thanksgiving.

  6. I predict your prediction will be the one to come true. LOL And please send some of that lovely snow this way. I would LOVE it! I have not heard about cooking the turkey like that. I might try it.

  8. Haven't cooked a turkey in years. My family always votes for leg of lamb of prime rib

  9. I've done the rubbing of butter between the skin and the meat before. I guess the spatchcocking just makes it cook faster. I'm getting to the point of wishing we were getting snow instead of all this rain. ;-)

  10. It has gotten cold here too. Supposed to get into the 20's tonight. Hopefully no snow though!

  11. We've got some colder temperatures coming too, but no snow. Poppy sees turkeys during deer season and deer during turkey season.

  12. I saw the snow up there on the radar and wondered if you were "white" yet. My daughter was all excited as it looked like it was coming across Nebraska headed for Iowa but I think it lost it' steam for them.
    The turkey sounds good but since it's just me and "the girls" I think I'll just get one of those breasts to cook. I still have to have all my sides thought! LOL!
    What are you guys doing for Turkey Day?

  13. Your weather guys are nuts. There could be variations but not that much . So keep toasty and enjoy the snow.

  15. That is a very different way to prepare a turkey but it may just work.

  16. We usually roast our turkey whole on a charcoal grill with smoke. Yummy. I could see cooking a small turkey this way.
    I awake the final results of the prediction wars.

  17. I see the shows teach how to do that technique to chicken but I have never seen it for turnkey. It makes sense that it would cook a lot faster. One would have to have a big pan to do that in to lay it down.
