Turkey carving seems like this big daunting task. On Thanksgiving, American women usually relinquish the turkey carving rights to the head of the household. Because we're scared of it. Sure, we can bake fabulous pies but the thought of having to dismember a bird terrifies most of us.
I'm weird though. I actually like carving turkey or chicken. All thanks to a how-to I saw on Alton Brown's Food Network show a while back. He made it look so easy. And, miracle of miracles, it is!
Now I don't want to take away your husband/father/uncle or whomever's joy of carving a turkey if they love it but I also think that if you're going to roast your own turkey, you should at least know how to carve it too.
So I was thinking about doing a vlog on how to carve a turkey but then I happened to be on YouTube and thought Alton Brown's video would undoubtedly be better than anything I could do with my tiny little automatic camera. Just saying.
And so, click here to put all your turkey carving fears to rest. You can pick up a roasted chicken from your grocery store to practice on before the big day (exactly the same process...just smaller).
