  1. Remove neck and giblets from the cavity of the turkey and set aside for another recipe.
  2. Wash the turkey and pat dry. Rub with vegetable oil or melted butter, rub with turkey seasoning rub.
  3. Place in a large roasting pan with a rack, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to cook.

  6. Keep a on the turkey, a meat thermometer should read 160 degrees inserted in the thick thigh meat when done
  7. Remove the turkey from the oven when the thermometer has popped out, the juices run clear when pierced in the thigh with a knife or a meat thermometer reading 160 degrees. Let the turkey rest 10 minutes before carving.
