I spatchcocked a turkey the other day... Knowing that my kitchen shears likely wouldn't cut the ribs, I went to Menards and bought some dandy pruning shears. It was a nice gift to myself. Worked perfectly! They are now a standard kitchen utensil!
I hadn't thought of removing the keel - thx 4 bring this up. Next time I will.
