How to Carve a Turkey

You can use this method for any bird you want to carve up.  Use it for turkey, chicken, duck, goose, qual, etc.
Cover the Turkey with a foil tent right after cooking for 20-60 minutes before carving. This will help distribute the juices evenly in the meat.

Use a sharp knife like a boning knife, utility knife, or illustrated here is an electric knife for carving the turkey.

When carving the turkey take off the turkey breast meat first. Slice white meat (turkey breast) across the grain for a more tender piece of meat.

You can pull the turkey legs off by breaking the joints. Pull down on the legs, then pull the legs away from turkey.  You have to find the opposite direction the tendons in the joint are running.  If you pull in the wrong direction its almost impossible, when you find the right direction it is just about effortless.
Cooking a turkey and using this carving method is perfect for any occasion like Thanksgiving or any family get together.

You may decide to cut up the turkey leg (drum stick) but the people I know love to get their hands on it and it eat like a primal caveman or cavewoman.

The turkey thigh is easy to cut up.  You can grab the thigh bone and start slicing down on the meat.

I have found this method to get a very good yield of meat off the bone.  There will still be some meat attached to the carcass.  You can use your hand to pull this off.  This meat will be some of the most tasty.  The closer the meat is to the bone the sweeter the meat.
