Preheat oven to 325ºF. Drizzle butter over outside of turkey. Season liberally with herbs, salt and pepper, covering entire bird inside and out.
Place seasoned turkey on roasting rack in a high-sided roasting pan. Cover loosely with foil, then roast for approximately 2 1/2 hours. Remove foil and continue roasting for another hour or so until the internal temperature registers 175ºF in the thickest part of the turkey.
