    The little piece of skin was like a pork rind. About halfway home.  Enjoyed champagne and smoked trout dip for an afternoon snack.

    @DMW -great gesture.  Hopefully he did his own spatching.  Tool of choice for that?

    Yeah, he spatchcocked his own bird. I used heavy duty kitchen shears and a cleaver to get the backbones out.

    If your ever having an issue with the backbone, I find a course serrated bread knife cuts through them like butter.  Not sure if thats why the tool of choice question was asked, but figured I'd throw this out there. Happy Thanksgiving

    Thermo pop fell in the oil with the turkey.  Took me a good minute to fish it out and it works fine - took a minute or two to walk the temp back down.

    Did creamed potatoes.  I'm going to do them like this from now on.  Roast raised up to 130 after rest.

    Made my first turkey gravy today with the backbone and neck of a spatchcocked bird. Little white wine, some chopped vegetables, chicken stock, fortified with some turkey drippings and soy sauce. It was pretty fabulous. Stoked to get such a good result on my first go. First time making mashed potatoes too. Those were great too.

    That's a win. I often think , that the only reason to make the turkey, is so you can make fabulous gravy.

    Looks like the nest of baby aliens after Sigourney Weaver hit it with the flame thrower.  Probably tasted great.

    Smoked a heritage breed pasture raised turkey from a local farmer over some pecan chunks, mashed potatoes, made some Hokkaido dinner rolls, roasted root veggies, broccoli w/ cheese sauce, and stuffing. Desserts were apple pie, pumpkin pie, key lime pie, and strawberry rhubarb pie.
