A Butcher Carves the Turkey

I realize this is a political website, but I love this video and just wanted to share it with you all today. I thought, really, who’s going to object if I put it up?

Every year before carving the turkey I watch this video to remind myself how an expert does it. You’ll see, it eliminates all the struggling and sawing and will result in a great platter of turkey meat.

And your family will think you’re some kind of turkey carving genius. And that can’t be bad.

Have a very Happy Thanksgiving.

  1. Happy Thanksgiving Keith. Hope you and your family have a nice day.

    Peace, the turkey pardoned last year by Obama, was euthanized yesterday, apparently the first victim of Obamacare, but certainly won’t be the last stupid turkey euthanized by Obamacare.

  2. That’s an easy to follow procedure for carving up the bird.

    My favorite teaching chef was the late JuliaChild. She would start explaining in her distinctive voice what she was going to do the bird ,all the while smacking the bird with one hand and poking it with her knife in the other hand. She’d flip that bird over and slice away, flip it again, slice some more until it was all cut up. She was a treasure.

    • Got her cook book last year for Christmas. What a treasure to read. Used her recipe for scalloped potatoes…simple and elegant. You can search for her on you tube to see some of the classics. Enjoy!

  3. Okay, I watched a few minutes of that. There is no way to do what he’s done with a hot turkey!

    I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving with great food and family!

  4. No objection here, Keith! Thanks! Wish I had watched this yesterday. I already carve the breast meat the way he advises, but I like the way he did the thighs. Now, to bookmark this somewhere for next year…

  5. Keith – saw this after the Thanksgiving meal but used it the next day to debone the turkey – it worked great. Thanks for posting – carving on Thanksgiving won’t ever be the same…
