This was my second year making turkey, first time using this recipe. Big hit!! The recipe IS as simple as it sounds with hardly any prep time. I had a 13lb. bird, and elevated it in the pan with a small rack. After preparing as directed (being very generous with the butter, especially near the drums), I covered the entire turkey in foil. (No tent). Basically, my turkey steam cooked. After two hours, I was pleasantly surprised to see it had turned a beautiful golden brown. I only took the foil off the last half hour of cooking, for browning and only basted once the foil was off. I was going to use the drippings to make a sauce or gravy, but I didn't need to. Needless to say, this was the juiciest, most flavorful turkey I have ever eaten in my life. Sp simple, so delicious.
