I would give this recipe 10 stars if I could! When I told my family this was my first turkey, they were preparing to grab their knives and forks thinking they would have to cut into some dry bird. They were amazed how tender and juicy the breast was and several commented over and over that this was the best turkey they ever tasted! For a 22 lb turkey, I used two sticks of butter. I used most of it under the breast and the rest I smothered all over the bird. I put onions, celery, bay leaves and garlic cloves in the cavity and followed the rest of the instructions accordingly. It took 4 hours and was a beautiful golden brown. The neck and giblets I threw in the slow cooker separately w/ more celery, onions, etc and made a delicious gravy with the stock from the turkey. I can't wait to make this again for Xmas! Thanks for the great recipe.
