I had fun basting, but my 20 lb turkey took much too long to cook through. Although my turkey spent a week in the fridge defrosting, I suspect it may not have been fully thawed. So instead of having a perfectly golden browned, juicy turkey at 4 to 5 hours of cooking, I had a dry dark brown turkey at 7 hours of cooking. It still tasted good, and the drippings made delicious gravy, but I didn't have the juicy bird I was hoping for. However, I can't find fault with the recipe for my dry bird. Next time I'll try a smaller bird that's completely, undoubtedly thawed.
