That is WAY too thick. I agree about everything else but please "carve" the turkey and make slices for your guests. Who wants turkey chops?

Actually, I think that the video was pretty darn cool. I have butchered a few birds over the last 40 plus years of being handed the knife, and I really liked the presentation. The slices were there, and they will be more juicy from the way he has everything staying together, and not just laying on top of each other.
