I've tried many different roast turkey recipes over the years, but this is the basic and tried and true. I used a 12 lb turkey and cooked it just under 3.5 hours. Used a large enamel roasting pan and rack and used the roasting lid instead of foil. Basted every 45 min. and uncovered for the last hour. I let it rest 30 min semi covered and it was perfect. I added carrots, celery and onion to the bottom of the pan before roasting and the juices made a beautiful gravy while the bird rested. Thanks for posting this easy and true roast turkey recipe. I have found after all of the variations I have tried, this is simply the best.
