Ingredients

1 fresh 15 pound turkey

1 cup vegetable oil

Salt and pepper, to taste

Nature's Seasons seasoning mix, to taste

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. Remove the neck, liver and heart from the turkey. Rinse turkey with cold water inside and out. Dry off the turkey.
  3. Rub vegetable oil, salt, pepper and Nature's seasons on both sides of the turkey. Place turkey breast side down on a V-rack inside a shallow roasting pan. Mold aluminum foil tightly to the turkey. Place turkey in oven and cook for about 3 1/2 hours (15 minutes per pound).
  4. When there is about a 1/2 hour left in your cooking time, remove the foil and flip the turkey breast side up to brown. The turkey is done when the meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thigh not touching the bone reads 175 to 180 degrees. Let stand for about 20 minutes before carving.
