Wanna carve a turkey like a boss?  We'll help you out.  There is just something about a take charge kind of guy that knows how to slice a bird properly.  It's really not that hard, but having a little knowledge will increase your confidence and have you looking like a stud.  Some instructions and a video after the jump.


Manly men are the ones who carve the turkey. It's a job usually left to grandpas and dads.  For this reason, it's a great way to impress the females in you life. They think you're 'the boss' if you know who to slice a bird.  Some think you should display the turkey for that twenty then take it back to the kitchen for carving.  That's cool, but that doesn't give you a chance to show off.

I really suggest you watch the video, but here's some shorthand reminders.

*Let the turkey rest for about 20 minutes

*Pull the junk out out of the inside

*Slice the legs off first

*Carve the sides parallel to the breast bone

*Do not pick up the carcass and hump it while yelling "this is how I do yo mama".

Those five simple steps will have you looking like a boss.  My suggestion is to invest in a carving knife. Mine was eight bucks.  Now if you want to get more in depth, check out the video below.
