What is the differance between   Spatchcocked and Butterflied?

1 - measure the board twice, 2 - cut it once, 3 - measure the space where it is supposed to go        4 - get a new board and go back to step 1

I think it's all in the spelling. Read Alton Brown's recipe.

I am so glad you explained that....somehow a "spatchcocked"turkey sounded like something that needed to be treated at  the vet to me...I've so much to learn...thanks for your help...Jersey

Did not see anything on Spatchcock, only info on butterflying.  Is there a differance between the two procedures or is a tomato/tomatoe/potato/potatoe issue?

Well, check this out, then you can decide if they both mean the same thing or not.

Hmmm...now I'm wondering if the butchers at Central Market will spatchcock my turkey for me?  Think I'll have to ask.

Thanks, it does seem that it is just a matter of semantics.  The closest I can see to a differance is that when butterflying you do not HAVE to remove the breast bone but in spatchcocking you are supposed to remove it. 


 Does that sound right?
