Makes sense to me. I'll have to make sure the wife cuts up the Xmas turkey in the kitchen, the proper way.

That's how I do chickens and turkeys. ;) works great.

Do you cook your stuffing inside or outside the bird?

I still do the stuffing in a cheese cloth type bag in the bird, any extra we cook on it's own then mix it all together. Just stuffed one this morning. 22.4lbs hen....turkey dinner!

**drool** I love turkey. We stopped adding stuffing about three years ago and it is much easier to verify temps for cooking a perfect juicy bird. I have never tried cutting off the whole breast, though. I'm going to try that this year for sure.

Well the bronze broad breasted lived up to its name. The breast was at least 4" thick of solid meat, and about the size of a whole chicken. Very good!

This isn't how everyone cuts a bird? It looks way nicer and is the path of least resistance...

Now add to this Gordon's method for a turkey and it's a excellent combo (though I prefer stuffing the bird by far)

If the turkey is dry, I'd cut the strips thinner to allow for a higher gravy to meat ratio.

I think the absolute massacre/shredding of the turkey he shows in the beginning is what the alternative is?

Cook it breast down. That way the juices flow into the breast and it doesn't dry out.
