Yummy! We had our Thanksgiving Dinner yesterday and I followed some of the ideas from this. I have cooked a turkey breast down before and it makes the breast meat so much juicier. But I flipped it over this time with about 45mins left and got that beautiful crispy skin that others in my family love. I used only 1/4 c butter with a 18 lb turkey as we are trying to reduce fat and calories. I seasoned the butter with sage, pepper, thyme & garlic then rubbed some under the skin, on the outer skin and inside the cavity. Wow, it was the best turkey I have ever made and I have made ALOT of turkeys! I felt the reduced amount of butter was just fine and the drippings made a wonderful gravy. Thanks for the recipe and for the reviewers suggestions.
