Will a 20lb turkey fit on a large if it is spatchcocked?

    I was curious if presenting a spatchcock turkey was appropriate for thanksgiving.  I've been meaning to try one but just haven't had the time yet.  Do many of you cook your turkeys this way for the holiday??
    I don't carve tableside.  All people see is a carved bird coming out on a platter ready to be served so everybody can get food and eat.

    FWIW I find a spatched bird is easier to carve because it sits flat and still.  I'm with @ragtop99- carve it ahead of time and it is ready to serve and it still makes a great presentation.  Martha Stuart even agrees ;)

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.
