Thanksgiving is not celebrated as a holiday here in Iceland, but the traditional US meal for it is very popular. So DH & I play host to it annually for 2 other couples & their families. That was last nite. I grd the herbs finely & used my pastry brush to baste the bird. The meat was well-flavored & the pan drippings used for gravy esp so. I have made a lot of turkeys for Thanksgiving in my lifetime, but this was my best effort. I credit your recipe & a new cooking method (for me) for a moist & tasty turkey. Made for your Football Pool win & thx for sharing this recipe w/us. :-) *Edited to Add* I noted the nutritional data & it seems inflated to me for 1/2 cup butter & the herbs. I wonder if the amt of butter/margarine has been doubled in the calculation?
