    Rub turkey all over with remaining oil mixture..add some to the cavity as well.. You can stuff at this time..but I do not..Roast on a roasting rack in a roasting pan for 30 min..turn the heat down to 300 degrees..Roast for 3 hours, basting every 30 min..or until a thermometer reads 180 degrees..in the inner thigh area..To make a juicier turkey put a pan of plain water in oven as well..

    Prepare the gravy while turkey is resting..tented with foil, on a carving board..Pour off the excess oil in the roasting pan, leaving the brown drippings..Set the roasting pan on the stove over med heat. Whisk 2 cups chicken broth with the cornstarch.and pour into pan, stirring, Bring to boil; cook five minutes or until you reach your desired thickness..Strain into gravy boat..(because of your rosemary) and keep warm
