Perfect Roast Turkey in 90 Minutes

Fast Roast Turkey

Just in time for Thanksgiving…perfect roasted whole turkey in just 90 minutes!

Every year we cook up a bunch of turkeys (11 this year, a new record!) and take them to a local homeless shelter for their annual Thanksgiving dinner.

This year I wanted to try a new technique I’d heard about, and it turned out great…all six times! :)

Here’s a video I put together during the roasting…

The highlights:

  • 12-14lb turkey, spatchcocked
  • Preheat oven to 450F
  • Roast 90 minutes, rest 20 minutes

Oh, and if you really want to amp up the flavor and juiciness of your bird, brine it! You can check our our post My Best Brined Turkey Recipe, over at our BBQ site, Burnin’ Love BBQ.

Happy Thanksgiving!
