Basically this way of cooking a turkey (or poultry) flattens the bird. Since there is more surface space, the

turkey will cook more quickly. Whether you use the Food Network app or another video site, the method is easy to learn.

Also, if you are just serving a turkey breast, you can use your air fryer to quickly cook that turkey. Butterball recommended this method and it really works. Plus, the turkey skin comes out very crispy.
