Best way to cook a 30 pound turkey?
My local whole foods was running a great sale on a fresh local bird at 99 cents a pound but by the time I went to sign up for one all they had left was 28-30 pound turkeys. I figured- eh what the heck I can cook a 30 pound turkey. At first I planned on doing the spatchcock with a smaller bird but something this large won't fit in my oven like that. I don't really want to cook it whole (i'm trying to participate in a 5k in the morning) I thought I might be able to cut it in half- but then realized I might not have the right tools to cut the breast bone without hacking the poor thing to pieces. Any suggestions??
