My friend and Thanksgiving guest David caught my turkey carving madness via digital video. I was so engrossed I didn't even notice he was wielding a camera (if Mandel dies, David would be an excellent replacement host on Howie Do-it). I prepped for this year's turkey by watching ten how-to videos online (the best of which can be found here). And while I wasn't able to achieve the same speed and grace as the pros, I will say the end effect was the prettiest durn bird I ever done carved. Watch me wax poetic about the nuance of turkey preparation here.
