What does science say is the best way to cook a turkey? Spatchcock it. That’s right. Spatchcock your turkey by cutting out the back bone and pushing down on the front until the breast bone breaks, and then roast that bad boy at high heat. Spatchcock turkey is the best turkey. It changes the shape to reduce cooking time and increase carmelization (which increases flavor).
