We've all seen it happen.  The turkey is cooked perfectly.  The table is set with the fancy dishes and you're even going to use napkins today...real napkins with turkeys or capricorns printed on them!  Then the person that is designated to carve the turkey stands up and just butchers it!

There is a correct way to carve a turkey.  And yes...it does matter.  If your turkey is cooked correctly but carved incorrectly it could mean chewy meat for you instead of nice tender meat.
