      We tried it your way this Thanksgiving ... It was great! The flavor of the turkey was great. Would definitely do this again.

      I used half of the butter mixture on a whole chicken. It gave it great flavor, I will be using this recipe often. I always roast my chicken in a clay pot and they are always so moist. Loved the flavor it imparts.

      Just realized I've not posted a review for this after having cooked it so many times. Best turkey I've ever cooked! Only changes made: stuffed cavity with chopped onions,celery fresh parsley, and added same seasonings used inside as on the outside rubbed well. Basted occasionally with own juices. Great turkey!
