Are you making this? 
1 tb olive oil
1/2 ts Black pepper
3/4 c Chicken broth; or Turkey Broth
1 12-lb turkey; Fresh or frozen
2 ts Poultry seasoning

Original recipe makes 12



Preheat the oven to 325-F degrees. Rinse turkey, drain, and pat dry. Remove neck and giblets; reserve if youd like to use the giblets for gravy. Truss the turkey. Place, breast side up, on a rack in a large roasting pan. Pour the broth into the bottom of the pan. Brush the turkey with the olive oil. Sprinkle on the poultry seasoning and black pepper. Insert roasting thermometer in turkey thigh, making sure it doesnt touch bone. Roast the turkey for 3 to 3 1/2 hours or until thermometer registers 180-F degrees, basting often and covering with foil if necessary to prevent over-browning. Let turkey stand for 15 to 20 minutes before carving. Posted to by Recipe-a-Day on Nov 1, 1999, converted by MM_Buster v2.0l.
