Oh no! Despite reading Turkey Torching Tips for Guys, you have a great big, fully-cooked, deep-fried Thanksgiving turkey on your hands. You examine it minutely and discover there is no little red zip tab to open so you can take out slices. What now?
That’s some big old avian cadaver you got there, buddy. There’s only one manly way to divvy it up. That’s right: chainsaw.
Wipe off the chain and call the manufacturer to see if you can safely spray it with Pam or a similar food-grade lubricant. Use a clean bedsheet as a dropcloth to gather the “sawdust” for making turkey salad.
Observe all chainsaw safety rules, including use of protective eyewear. Imagine having to answer the question “Hey, what happened to your eye?”
Start ‘er up. Slice away. Man, that sounds great!
Clean out your Shopvac; use it to remove pulverized turkey shreds from the bedsheet drop-cloth before sneaking it into the laundry hamper. This may save your marriage. Reserve meat shreds for turkey salad.
Chow down, dude!
Clean the saw completely before using it to to prepare the winter woodpile or make those goofy lawn sculptures.
