Thanksgiving Turkey

I keep it simple and my turkey always comes out moist and delicious.

  1. I rub the entire turkey with room temperature butter,
    more is best.
  2. Then I season with salt and pepper including the inside of the turkey.
  3. Then into a 350 degree oven on a roasting rack in a roasting pan.
  4. After an hour I baste the turkey then only once again about 30 minutes later.
  5. Opening the oven to many times slows the roasting time down dramatically. I roast my turkey until the juices run clear when you cut between the leg and the thigh. Using a thermometer is always recommended.
  6. I remove and place the turkey on a platter and cover with aluminum foil and let rest for 20 minutes.
