DIRECTIONS

  • take all that weird stuff out of the turkey.
  • make the rub by mixing all non-turkey ingredients.
  • preheat oven to 350.
  • rub turkey with the rub. if there's any left over, stuff in turkey belly.
  • do not put stuffing inside turkey. gross! close the turkey legs with that plastic thing (or string if your turkey doesn't have that.
  • put turkey in roaster, elevated from bottom of pan.
  • cover with tin foil, making sure you don't let top of foil touch turkey.
  • let cook for about 2:45 or so with foil on. do not baste.
  • for last 15-20, remove foil, so turkey skin can get a good bit of color.
  • let rest about 20 so you can slice it up.
  • for gravy: take drippings, place in pot. heat up. while heating, make a mix of 1 cup cold water to 1/4 cup cornstarch. slowly add to the broth, a bit at a time so you make sure you haven't messed up too much.
  • warning: instructions for high altitude (5000 feet above sea level). make sure you adjust to your altitude. always cook turkey to like, 165-170.
