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!

Really nice combination of spices and the turkey was really nice and moist. I think next time I will add more butter to the spice mixture as it was quite a thick paste. Near the end of baking I basted the turkey to remove many of the bigger clumps just because they looked weird. I like this recipe and I'll use it again with a bit of tweaking. Thanks for posting.

DH was going to smoke the turkey this year at Thanksgiving unfortunately due to bad weather, that didn't happen. I found this recipe in a supermarket booklet and gave it a try. The turkey was moist and well seasoned. The only thing I did different was to stuff the cavity with a large apple that had been cut in half.
