Not going to lie, I giggled the first time I heard the word spatchcock.

After learning what it meant and applying it, I realized it was something I should have been doing every time I cooked a turkey or chicken. "Spatchcocking" is the process of flattening the bird by removing its backbone. So why should you do it? Your turkey will cook quicker and more evenly which means it'll be tastier and juicer! There's nothing worse than dry turkey!

I did it the last time I smoked a chicken, and it was the best chicken I have ever cooked!

Using this method allows you to cook the bird in a third of the time. Learn more in the video below:
