Oleta's Turkey Dry Rub

READY IN: 2hrs 10mins
Recipe by Redneck Epicurean

My ex's step-mother was a BOMB in the kitchen. For Thanksgiving she rubbed the turkey down with this before cooking. Talk about some good eatin! Prep time is quick, but passive time will depend on how large your bird is, so the 2 hours are a guess.

Thank you so much for this recipe. I used it on our Christmas Turkey and my husband loved it. He said it was the best Turkey he'd ever had. The meat just fell of the bone it was so moist it also made a great turkey soup. Thank you!
