This recipe does not call for basting, but I basted the turkey every half hour for the last two hours. I also used about one and a quarter sticks of butter. The chicken boullion - I used a full box (8 packets). I added one full chopped onion in the center and crushed garlic. Make sure you put the foil over the turkey, but try not to let it touch the turkey in too many areas.
I cooked the Turkey for 5 hours at 350 degrees Farenheit (180 celcius) for a 17lb turkey. Tasted moist, but I think it could have used the full amount of season salt, I just sprinkled a small amount on top.
