Any opinions on when I should try to peal this netting off of the birds?
Before/after FTC, or when it is cooled off and ready to slice?

Frankly, I always cut that stuff off before I cook..

IMO I'd get the net off while it is warm. Really depends on when you think it will release better.

Ok, thx.   I will try to rip it off when the FTC time is complete..   It will still be warm, but not burn-your-fingers hot.

POURING rain here now.   What a good time for the Maverick to go off..   :-\

Winner Winner Turkey Dinner !
That net print is awesome. Looks like the 5 spice is juicier on the outside.
Hope it didn't rob the inside juice. John Henry's place is about 50 minutes from me.
Nice color on both, great shape.

Actually, I'm going for a big fat ribeye new york strip tonight  :D, but those little cluckers will make some nice sandwiches this week/next.

Yeah, I noticed that too.  I think that was the 'skin side' up in the first shot, and the other was flipped over.
The netting came off somewhat easily, but I really should have done that outside.  Rub/turkey bark flying everywhere!

Thanks!

Oh, and for those keeping track..   The 5 spiced one was the $6.50 Honeysuckle White from IGA, and the second was the $11.50 Butterball from Meijer..   The butterball is a bit larger.

I need to watch for more of the $6.50 deals..    This beats store bought lunch meat any day!

Will do!    Just licking my fingers when pulling the netting off, the 5 spiced one had a serious range of flavors going on..
