This turkey came out moist, savory, juicy and tender. The meat was falling off the bone! I added lots of minced garlic, fresh sliced lemons, Hawaiian sea salt, fresh ground black pepper and fresh herbs (sage, rosemary, marjarom, basil, etc.) to real butter and olive oil and rubbed it all over the turkey and under the skin, cavity, etc. I also cut one lemon in half and squeezed it all over the turkey and placed the lemons inside the cavity along with half onions, more garlic and basil. I basted it every 30 minutes for 4 1/2 hours and took off the foil the last 30 minutes of the cooking process to make a nice brown color. I used a gravy/fat separator for the juice in the pan and added one package of turkey gravy mixture. I would definitely used this recipe again. It was easy, delicious and so satisfying! I served this with," Bread and Celery Stuffing," also from this website.
