Spatchcocking delivers breast meat juicier than a standard roast turkey, leg meat more tender than a standard roast turkey, and skin that's so crisp it literally shatters when you poke it, all in about half the time it takes to roast a conventional turkey. A perfect Thanksgiving bird on the table in under 90 minutes? Watch the video to see how it's done.
