Roasted Turkey in a Hurry
Have you ever spatchcocked a bird? Unlikely, and yet it is a cooking technique with several important advantages. Another term for this quick cooking method is “butterfly.. Although it sounds complicated when described in words, it is easily learned from a demonstration. Basically it involves removing the bird’s backbone and spreading it out more or less flat. It is especially good if you’d like to barbecue.
The two major points about this process are: a. It is a lot faster than the usual “whole bird on its back” method and b. The breast meat and the dark meat get cooked in about the same amount of time, so they are both juicy and succulent. A spatchcocked small turkey can be done in as little as 45 min. vs. about 4 hours the regular way. Another great result is that more of the turkey skin gets nicely crisped. The only negatives are that if carving the bird at the table is a major part of your ritual, it will be harder and not as satisfyingly spectacular, and you can’t cook any stuffing inside your bird.
This technique is also very good for roasting chickens and even game hens. Be sure with all types of poultry to watch the temperature as you cook. Check with a good instant read thermometer, because that bird might be done before you think.
