Ingrèdiènts

  • 12 pound turkèy thawèd
  • 6 tablèspoons unsaltèd buttèr cut into 1 Tablèspoon pats
  • 1 1/2 yèllow onions pèèlèd and halvèd
  • 4 garlic clovès pèèlèd

Dry Rub:

  • 2 tèaspoons salt
  • 2 tèaspoons drièd thymè
  • 1 tèaspoon drièd sagè
  • 1/2 tèaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 tèaspoon pèppèr
  • 1/2 tèaspoon ground mustard


Instructions

  1. Prèhèat your ovèn to 325 dègrèès F.
  2. In a bowl, combinè thè salt, thymè, sagè, paprika, pèppèr, and ground mustard until èvènly incorporatèd.
  3. Rèmovè thè turkèy from its packaging. From thè bird's cavity, rèmovè thè nèck and thè bag containing thè gizzards and hèart. (You can kèèp thèsè itèms to makè stock or discard thèm.)
  4. Usè a fèw papèr towèls to dry off thè skin of thè bird and insidè thè cavity.
  5. Lift thè skin ovèr thè turkèy brèast (on thè sidè closèst to thè lègs) and slidè your hand undèr thè skin sèparating it from thè brèast mèat. Do this on both sidès of thè brèast.
  6. Insèrt thrèè pats of buttèr undèr thè skin on onè sidè fo thè turkèy brèast sprèading thèm around èvènly. Rèpèat on thè othèr sidè.
  7. Sprinklè thè dry rub all ovèr thè turkèy - brèast, lègs, wings, anything you can sèè. Using your hands prèss thè rub into thè skin a littlè. If you havè any èxtra rub sprinklè it insidè thè cavity.
  8. Placè thè onion halvès and garlic clovès insidè thè turkèy's cavity.
  9. Transfèr thè bird to your roasting pan. (I likè to usè a pan with a rack to kèèp thè bottom of thè turkèy from gètting soggy.)
  10. Takè a good sizèd piècè of foil and placè it ovèr thè turkèy brèast. (You want to makè surè to thè foil piècè is big ènough to fit ovèr thè wholè brèast.) Prèss down and mold thè foil to thè brèast., lèt thè ènds stick out if thè foil's a bit big.
  11. Placè thè turkèy in thè ovèn and roast for 2 hours. Carèfully rèmovè thè foil from thè turkèy. Incrèasè thè ovèn tèmpèraturè to 400 dègrèès and cook thè turkèy for anothèr hour, or until thè intèrnal tèmpèraturè of thè brèast rèachès 165 dègrèès F and thè skin is goldèn and crispy.
  12. Rèmovè thè turkèy from thè ovèn and lèt it rèst brièfly bèforè carving.

Notès
Thè cooking timè in this rècipè is for up to a 12-pound turkèy. Add 15 minutès of cook timè at 325 dègrèès F for èach additional pound.
