Attempting this with a monster, 7.5 lb Purdue Oven Stuffer Roaster! Reporting, real-time as it cooks.
I doubled everything, but I couldn't fit all 4 spent lemons & a softball-size onion in its cavity! Apparently a 2.5 sized bird didn't get me a 2.5 size cavity! (Managed 12 cloves of garlic, though... priorities!) Combined wet & dry ingredients (had no seasoned salt - subbed w/poultry seasoning & salt) & rubbed inside, under skin & outside. Tented, breast-down, on a rack, in my turkey pan over 1c water & 1c Chardonnay, @ 350, for 1 hour, no basting.
Flipped it to breast-up @ 1 hour, removed tent & basted with oil/juice/rub mix & threw 2 lbs of red potatoes & the onions that wouldn't fit inside, in bottom of pan. Kitchen smells amazing... the kitty's going nutz! (Me too!)
Basted with oil/juice/rub mix @ 30 min intervals for remaining 90 min. The kitty is losing her mind (as are the Mrs & I)!
Do I trust the pop-up? Yup!
Out, tented & resting. Mrs is doing frozen Italian green beans, in MW as a side.
YUM! Will make again... with a smaller bird!
