Spatchcocked Turkey

Not a long post today; I usually post my Thanksgiving write up after the big day, I thought I’d share with you ahead of time what I plan on cooking in case you are looking for inspiration.

As you may remember I’m not a huge turkey fan and I have gone through many iterations of turkey cooking over the years. Follow this link for a summary.

In fact, for a while I considered cooking a brisket instead. Then I looked at the work involved from the delicious braised brisket with mushrooms and decided that turkey would be less work on a crazy busy cooking day. Then I re-read my post from last year and it jogged my memory that I made a very tasty turkey by spatchcocking (butterflying) and dry brining.

So, if you’re feeling uninspired by turkey cooking try this roast turkey from Serious Eats. Go to the 2016 posting for a detailed summary with recipe links.
