Turkey Cooking Directions: Falls off the Bones!

My husband is a great cook (he should be a pro chef) and I thought I'd share his little recipe on how to make a tender and juicy turkey this Thanksgiving.

12-25 pound Turkey (100% Thawed Turkey)

Temp. 375 (F)
Cook Time: 2-2.5 Hours (DO NOT OPEN EVEN ONCE!)
Don't Open Oven and Don't Open Foil for 2-2.5 Hours!!!
Keep Turkey Covered at least in TIGHT Aluminum Foil!!! NO Venting!

Ingredients (WHOLE) (No Stuffing Recipe)
Rinse out carcass and rinse outside of Turkey with water.

Salt (Cupped Handful) rub inside of the carcass.

Goal: Fill cavity!
1 or 2 Onions (Peeled)
2, 3, or 4 Apples

Gently rub butter under the skin of the turkey starting from the sides keeping the top and bottom of the skin attached, careful not to break the skin. Also rub outside of turkey with butter.

After 2-2.5 hours if the leg comes off or just the bone comes out and leaves the meat in tray then its done!

Broil to desired brown.

Cut, EAT!!!!

Warning meat may fall off the bone due to tenderness and juicy-ness ;)
