My Spatchcocked Turkey.

Sawzall . So cool. Innovative.  Especially if a person has hand wrist issues to work around.

My wife would freak if she saw me do the same.

 

Have had trouble spatchcocking but my fix is a serrated knife and a cut resistant glove.

The bird looks great.  The last time I spatchcocked a Turkey,  I could't get the back cut.  My poultry shears just wouldn't cut it out.  I had to take out the big guns---- my sawzall.  It worked perfect. I may even use it next time.  easy-squeezy

No doubt a sawzall would do the job, but it's not even close to sterile or kitchen safe. Even if you had a spererate dedicated one, it would be hell to clean and sanitize between uses. These poulty shears cost about 30 bucks and do the trick guaranteed. i did spatchcok turkeys last year the this year. These OXO shears cut through flesh and bone very easily. Also they come apart with a twist and therefore are super easy to clean. Better choice I am thinking, and your wife won't think your crazy.

 Thanks Keeper.  Not me using a sawzall to spatchcock.  Glad you caught that.

 

My wife.... well that depends.  She's a baker. Baking is so dependent on exacts. The TLAR method I sometimes use cooking makes her wonder.

 

Be good Amigo.

I'm doing two Christmas cooks for the family this year, both for the first time. Plan is a spatchcocked turkey on Sunday for my wife's side of the family, then prime rib on Monday for my side of the family. Grateful for all the tips and tricks on this forum!
