    64. athenearosa

      To be fair, Spatchcocking Turkey really didn't catch on until Alton Brown's Good Eats episode Countdown to T day aired on November 15, 2013.

    65. racewiththefalcons1

      Roasting a turkey is not difficult, actually. Thaw, clean (they come with all the organs in a bag now, so it's simple), rub butter/oil/herbs on _and under_ the skin, then put in oven. Then wait. That's it. Take out of oven, cover loosely in foil for one hour, then eat. It almost can't get easier.

      1. racewiththefalcons1

        @Ravenclaw That is not what basting does. The butter and oil rub is what will brown the skin. Opening your oven unnecessarily in the middle of cooking has no positive effect on roasting a turkey.

      2. Ravenclaw

        You need to baste it though Otherwise you can’t get the crispy beautiful dark golden brown skin

    66. Crimsion

      The intro is always never gets old

    67. BingoClamshell

      Like Steph, my wife also loves the neck and dark meat, lol, was hoping there would be a compromise at the end like cooking the wings separately...

    68. DeathTheDolphin

      Cool now I know the best way to cook a turkey. Too bad I'm a ham guy

    69. The Main Character

      I swear one day I'm going to be sitting on my rocking chair and tell my future grandkids that we spatchcocked are turkey back in the day

    70. NikoTheWolf

      I live in Canada but sadly where i live I don't think we celebrate thanksgiving, and if we do then my family doesnt.

    71. matthew durette

      In my house, we always used turkey bags. The plastic bag keeps the moisture on the turkey and you just forget about it and take it out of the oven 5 hours later.

    72. curtis forrest

      You could take it a step further and completely debone the turkey and grill it on charcoal or propane. Turns out real well provided meat is cut to the right thickness I say no more than one to two inches thick. My dad despises turkey he loved it. We also do a unique soak for about a hour to three can be done in a single day with out the lengthy brine. Lightly coat in butter Use two to three shakes of each Use soy sauce teriyaki sauce Worcester sauce hickory and mesquie liquid smoke (Note on the smokes:just a cap of each a small overflow is okay but no more than the cap is needed.) Add a coating to taste(I do three shakes of container in a circle or three pinches if in jars again circle) of Greek seasoning accent garlic and onion powder all seasoned salt(optional I found but original rep called for it) rosemary( just a shake over each peice) dill weed and parcley flakes(three shakes of each) try it cook till golden i want to see which way is quicker so you can do this again and have two turkeys as business expenses again matpat 😆

    73. Danny Danny

      Put that Mean in your Mouth haha

    74. toysmostwanted

      Here's an idea: deep fry a spatchcocked turkey for 2021.

    75. Slytherin for life

      Okay, but, can we talk about how adorable MatPat and Steph are?

    76. Vini

      Adam Ragusea is screaming right now

    77. Aneta

      14:08 That’s an interesting piece of paper.. 👀

    78. Zabala D. Oroz

      Wait I am 21 a chef and cook it with my dad for the fam.

    79. Zabala D. Oroz

      No mat it was and still is delicious.

    80. ShidoDraws

      Being an American I don't really eat turkeys but this is kinda fun to watch.

    81. LittleBear Sullivan

      Try adding a little more time and turning the turkey a few times

    82. ayala tausig

      Matpat: does a video about meat Me: vegetarian

    83. Jeremy

      Fried Spatchcock Turkey?

    84. Rebecca Rushman

      The only acceptable way to cook a turkey is to deep fry it in peanut oil. Unless you have a peanut allergy, then that's just dangerous.

    85. Kim Chi

      I am Korean and growing up we always butterflied our turkeys! We also deep fry the wings which is very nice!

    86. Water Melon

      Is it just me or dose 13:40 and 13:39 the left turkey looks like a pig head

    95. Josh Mitt

      I spatchcock a lot (didnt know there was a word for it!). I have my culinary Tin Snips, from harbor freight. Haha just get a new pair and keep them in your kitchen like sheers. its so cheap, and make cutting out a birds spine easy.

    96. WolfLeader Shane

      11:45 Mat you know what that means

    97. C Fry23

    98. LightBlazeX

      I knew it! They started this channel so that they can write off food as a business expense.

    99. Carter Poirier

      Matt Pat and Diet Coke I beat you

    100. VikingMale

      I just cut the legs away from the body. And make a slit down the leg bone, essentially spatchcock the leg. For juicy meat add a little chicken stock to bottom of pan while cooking. Add juices to stuffing, spread your stuffing on a baking sheet, cooks super fast.
