@ARealSidler's turkey is picture-perfect golden brown.
@kaprian's bird, ready to be carved.
Says @MikePSweeney: "I think that spatchcocking works." Yes Mike, I'd say it does.
"The spatchcock turkey recipe wins thanksgiving. So fast, crisp skin, juicy meat." Why hello there, @vanman0245's turkey. I like the cut of your jib.
@tizzod69 gave us a cool "Spatchcocked succesfully." That's an interesting but delicious looking lump your turkey's got there.
"I will spatchcock from this day forward," says @sonkie.
@richkash went the turducken route, stuffing his turkey, duck, and chicken layers with sweet Italian sausage from Pat LaFrieda.
I was kinda hoping artist @oftendrawn would draw a picture of how awesome his turkey looked.
@NolstalgiaNitro goes for the smoker this year.
@mfentriss gives a big "Mahalo and aloha" from Hawaii, where she "spatchcocked the turkey and it was amazing."
Twitter user @Kangatron had a few questions and a lot of trouble at the start: "I have major surf. area constraints. Think it'll work if I spatchcock, chop in half lengthwise, and only roast half the bird? Also have no wire rack, and slotted broiler cover has no room between cover and pan for veggies etc. Roasting pan + rack ok? Prop on extra veggies in the broiler pan without slotted cover?" But after cutting his turkey in half and roasting it over a bed of vegetables, everything turned out swimmingly in the end. "turned out juicy and perfect throughout. Spatchcocking FTW."
"Happy spatchcocked Thanksgiving," says @dantepreisfire. With skin that crisp and delicious, it ought to be happy indeed.
"My turducken kicked ass! chicken apple sausage & sage sausage inside duck, inside turkey," tweeted (twoth?) @cmyungtweet.
Crisp-Skinned Golden Brown Turkey
It doesn't look like your traditional thanksgiving centerpiece, but it's striking in its own way—namely ultra-crisp skin and perfectly juicy meat.
