– 18.5 lb turkey brined – I have an amazing brine recipe here, if not using brine, season turkey with salt and pepper. – 1/2 cup butter melted

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350F, once preheated drop the temperature to 325F. Pat the turkey dry with paper towel. Brush melted butter over turkey.

Step 2

Place turkey in a bag, then using toothpick, place 5-7 toothpicks on top of the turkey and turkey legs so the bag doesn't touches the skin. It helps avoid the bag getting stuck to the skin.

Step 3

Seal the bag and poke it in few spots using a knife. Place the turkey on a V rack in a heavy roasting pan, and into the oven it goes.

Step 4

Bake turkey until it is cooked and the juices run clear, about 4¼ to 4½ hours. The meat thermometer should read at least 180 degrees F when inserted into the thigh meat.
