  5. Rizky Reynda says:

    Did they change the camera? There’s something off about the video…

    Edit: yup they did. The description said the videos was shot using a google pixel 3

  6. MarkCapillanes says:

    Is it me or is there something different about the video quality? The lighting? The colour grading? Did they use a different camera?There’s something off…I just can’t pinpoint what it is. That being said, great content as usual.

  7. no thanks says:

    Not a big video expert but isn’t something off with the quality of this video? Not the content quality bc it’s Andy, but like something is off and I can’t quite put my finger on it 🧐 edit: just saw in the description that this was captured on Google Pixel 3! Interesting way to work a sponsorship in… hm.

    Please don’t use this frame rate in future videos.

    • ECL1PSE최승윤 says:

      +Lachlan Thorpe I have never been in discomfort when watching in 60fps. I simply just can’t relate bud.

    • Thristan Selma says:

      +ECL1PSE최승윤 dude 24fps(not higher)is the gold standard in shooting films because most people find it artistically looking than using higher frame rate. Even some tech youtuber like Dave2d uses 24fps in his videos. I guess its a matter of preference

    • The Holy Pope Chode II says:

      What both of you guys are missing is that the dude probably thinks that 60fps on film is better than 24fps film because most people use FPS when talking about games, where 24fps is unplayable and stuttery and 60fps is the standard. Rendering games is different to recording a movie. I think it’s a miscommunication.

    • Imaad Majeed says:

      +Spencer thanks for elucidating that! does the pixel allow for adjusting shutter speed? i think you need to use a specific app to control all that.

    • Spencer says:

      +Imaad Majeed I have doubts that it does, considering that most phones just auto expose, it’s likely that the brightness of the scene they were filming caused the phone to crank the shutter speed up to compensate for the brightness of the scene leading to the odd look. The other thing worth mentioning about the look is that the entire scene is in focus which would also have to do with the phone closing down the aperture which is just a big contrast to the usual look of the video. Honestly, I think that the phone footage, knowing that’s what it is, looks good, it just pales compared to their usual production.

    This is not a good ad for the Google Pixel 3.

  13. AwesomePossum says:

    Kind of wishing Andy would butter me…

  14. Reas says:

    Please don’t use the Pixel in the next videos, the quality compared to the old content is just worse. Great turkey tho!

  15. gizanked says:

    Saw Brad in the back. I’m surprised he didn’t run over when he heard the garlic smashing.

  16. aemmerich says:

    Was interested in Andy’s comments in favor of the dry brine. I’ve always done a wet and would love to see a BA turkey-off with dry vs. wet.

    • Cyrribrae says:

      Yea, I would think the bride would be less thorough. But then he also didn’t really season the cavity much. So maybe it’s not a problem?

    • tbharness86 says:

      I always do a wet brine. The turkey is so much juicer and had so much more flavor. I use one of those big, orange drink coolers (Igloo brand, I believe) which is insulated so it keeps the bird safely cool and has a spout for easy draining.

    • aemmerich says:

      +tbharness86 I think a dry brine might take a bit longer than a wet brine, but the dry salt will eventually work its way into the meat regardless. I think you do get more moisture absorbed into the bird with a wet brine, but I don’t know that that definitely translates into a more tender, juicier finished product.

      The benefit of drier skin giving you a better crisp in the oven is pretty enticing, but can it offset the (presumably) lower moisture content of the meat? I’d also be curious to know if there’s a significant difference in cook time between the two methods.

    • Ryan Burton says:

      I believe Serious Eats has an article about wet vs. dry for turkey (or maybe it was chicken).

    • Tim Seeburger says:

      Ever since I did a wet brine (I used to do dry) I’ve loved it. I buy those big Home Depot paint buckets and use that.

  17. Chris M says:

    For a phone camera it’s great but the framerate is weird for a cooking show.

  18. randomtennisball says:

    I would love to hear about the process used to decide which video/cook was stuck with the Pixel promotion. Were they banking on Andy being cute and sassy enough to distract from the quality of the video, did he draw the short straw or did Google specifically pay for Thanksgiving content to get in the faces of people during the holidays?

    Pomegranate yogurt turkey sounds amazing. Please make that happen.
