A sharp knife sure would have made things easier...it was like skinning with a butter knife :)

Made that look easy Bobby! I tried it last year, but I left too much on the cape by trying to only cut it down the center (wings left on). Had a tough time stretching it. Might go back and try trimming it off both sides to see if it looks any better. Good job on the video guys! Thanks.

Thanks Bobby. I'm going to give it whirl on my next bird.

I'm interested in seeing how you deal with the fan in the next video. I tend to struggle a little with getting the meat out.

Fred I should have taken a shot of that....not sure the video makes it perfectly clear.

The only meat I remove is whats on the skin side of the fan. Its like filleting a fish in that you hold the knife flat and trim the leat right down to the quills...Only yellow will be left.

Once you clip the p[ice of bone the meat is gone
