I have to start with a confession: Dave always carves the turkey at our house and I NEVER personally carve a turkey. Second confession: We fully intended to post a video of Dave efficiently carving a turkey, but we simply ran out of time. So no video this year. I have, however, spent some time looking for other sites that cover that information well. It was no surprise to me that there is a wealth of information out there on how to carve a turkey.
There are some great videos of carving a turkey correctly too.
My favorite chef, Alton Brown, has an excellent video on how to carve your Thanksgiving bird.
Cooking.com has a video on turkey carving.
If you’re a Pampered Chef fan, this video on carving a turkey is for you.
Now is a good time to remind you of an important item for your grocery list: aluminum foil. Many years I get all the way to Thanksgiving dinner and have forgotten to buy more foil. I say MORE because usually the prep work leading up to Thanksgiving dinner depletes my regular aluminum foil supply completely. This is one time of the year when it’s really helpful to have both regular foil and heavy-duty foil on hand. You’ll use both.
Next, once the turkey is carved, you’ll be needing to make homemade gravy. That’s in the next post!
