90 minute Turkey

    Have you seen the new recipes that claim dry salt rub marinated on your turkey the night before will make it cook up in as little as 90 minutes! I think it has to do with cutting out the backbone and breaking the breastbone. Has anyone tried this or have any knowledge on it?

      Don't know anything about it other than what I read here.

    Butterflying speeds up the cooking process, and this is a small bird, about half the size of a traditional turkey. I don't know why the salt would make it cook faster, but then, there are lots of things I don't know!

      No I don't see why either; I think I have heard salt cooks fish but never heard of it doing that on anything else. Would sure be nice to have it cook that quick if it is good and tender.
