Thanks, Mike!

I don't cook turkey that often, so I am no expert. I have had good luck with the spatchcock and with the basement method that I stole from @1buckie.

... Iíd  say in total it maybe took me 30-40 minutes. I️ could probably do it in 20 if I️ was in a rush....

My mother owned and ran a catering company out the kitchen of my Dadís Lounge (tavern/bar); that is, up until cancer made her retire; my first job was peeling and chopping potatoes for potato salad.  My second was dressing birds; turkeys, chickens, pheasants, ducks, Cornish hens and quail.

I was faster than all of my cousins, so that was all I did for an entire summer, 8, 10, 12 hours a day.  It got to the point where I could completely debone a chicken in 3 minutes and and a turkey in 5.  I have big hands, so it actually took me longer to do a Cornish hen or quail.  I was ecstatic when I was in college and old enough to serve alcohol and tend bar. LOLOL

Thatís awesome! Yeah chickens donít take too long and the little birds seem to take a bit more time. I wasnít in a hurry doing that turkey so I️ took a bit more care with it.
