This will be the Best Roast Turkey Recipe you ever eat! Crisp and golden on the outside, infused with citrus butter and herbs, perfectly juicy and moist on the inside. Here I'm sharing my 3 secrets to perfect roast turkey every time.
After the brining process, rinse the turkey very well under cold water.
While the turkey is roasting, combine the butter, orange zest, and rosemary leaves and mix well so all is combined.
Insert an oven proof meat thermometer into the side of the breast of the turkey.
If you don’t have a pot big enough for all the liquid in the brine, start with just 1 gallon of water. Once you’ve boiled and cooled it and you can add the rest of the water.
The prep time doesn't include the brining time, which is 16-18 hours. The cook time will vary depending upon the weight of your turkey. An oven thermometer is KEY.
