How {NOT} to Carve a Turkey

How hard can it be to carve a turkey?

I found out one Sunday afternoon a few weeks ago when I was preparing for Turkey Week. I asked my husband to photograph me while I carved the turkey I had just roasted. There was some mild eye-rolling, but he is generally game to play with his Nikon.

I took the turkey and what I thought was a sharp knife to our sunroom so we could capitalize on the natural light. And I started to carve.

So far so good...

But my knife began to fail me and I needed to twist.

...and pull...

...and tug...

And when it looked like this...we bagged the photo shoot...

I mean, really, how hard can it be to carve a turkey?

Apparently it's not hard for Alton Brown. And I'm sure it won't be hard for you either. Although, I would recommend a sharp knife. Check out his video on How to Carve a Turkey.
