  3. Place the turkey upside down in a roasting pan. Bake at 400 degrees until the skin begins to crisp.
  4. Turn the turkey over and lower the oven temperature to 325 degrees. When the skin begins to brown, add 4-6 cups water into the roaster, and cover the turkey with foil to prevent burning.
  5. Complete baking the turkey until its internal temperature registers 165 degrees.
  6. Remove the turkey from the oven when done, and allow it to rest 20-30 minutes before carving. Use the drippings in the roaster to make gravy!!
