Thanksgiving Turkey Coating
This will do about a 13 – 15 lb turkey. Other seasonings are to taste. I never did measure. This is a coating you can put on all poultry before roasting. Notice that this does not have any gravy master or oil. Both unneeded in my opinion. The skin cooks nice and crisp. Remember to baste during cooking. BTW, use this in the nuke too. Sometimes we do a turkey or chicken in there when we have lot's of other baking/roasting to do. When Howard was in training to be a chef, he brought home a bunch of fellow students for dinner. Not one of them even came close to guessing that the turkey had been made in the nuke.
- Basically you make a paste of the above ingredients. It should be the consistency of finger paint — thick and not runny.
- If you have kids, put them in old clothes and let them help.
- I smear it in and out of the cavity.
