Spatchcocked Roast Turkey recipe!

Just in time for the holidays! Now, my hubby's (Chef Caleb) not a butcher and he's a little out of practice breaking down a bird, but he really wanted to do a turkey video for the holiday season, and we've been seeing a bunch of people talking about spatchcocking this year, so we decided to do a video on that. We went a little further and removed the breastplate and also the thighs in our video, then we applied the compound butter we made last week under the skin, and it turned out SO well. It's amazing how fast a bird roasts when it lies nice and flat like that!

Also, we've just hit 275 subscribers! That's super exciting to me, and I thank anyone here who has subscribed to us on YouTube and/or passed our videos around to friends who are into food.

1. I now spatchcock all my chicken

and love it. I'm taking the same principles of spatchcocking and going to make a crispy duck for New Years.

I'm sure turkey done that way would be wonderful too and the time to cook it is so reduced.

2. So amazingly fast to roast

It was fantastic. And you don't get those dried out wings/drumsticks because everything takes about the same amount of time. Nice moist flavourful turkey!

I can imagine a duck done this way would be outstanding. Baste it a couple of extra times for extra crispy skin!

3. I'm letting it dry for 2 days too

that should really make the skin crackle!
