Wow! Thanks for posting Robin! I'm so glad that I decided to try this procedure for roasting turkey! I used 1 Tbls. Better than Bouillon Turkey Base in lieu of the chicken 'broth' (assumed that Robin meant bouillon/base since it was only 3 Tbls.) and only used 2 cups water, but ended up with almost 1 quart of fabulously flavored stock when the liquid was poured off, strained and defatted! Easiest, tastiest gravy base ever! I also cut back on the butter, using only 4 Tbls. I used my oval roaster and simply put the lid on it instead of covering it with foil... the 14 lb. bird I made was done to perfection in 3 hours! Since my turkey was done quicker than I had figured, I didn't get that '45 minute window' to remove the foil to let the turkey brown. I ended up turning on the broiler and returning the bird to the oven, after pouring off the liquid, to add color to the skin.. @8 minutes worked great!
