What You'll Need

12 pounds turkey
2 tablespoons vegetable oil

How to Make It

  • 1

    Heat the oven to 325°F.  Line a large roasting pan with aluminum foil.

  • 2

    Remove the package of giblets and neck from the turkey cavity.  Rinse the turkey with cold water and pat dry.  Tie the ends of the drumsticks together.

  • 3

    Place the turkey, breast-side up, into the pan.  Brush the turkey with the oil.  Insert a meat thermometer into the thickest part of the meat, not touching the bone.  Place a sheet of foil over the turkey, "tenting" it up in the middle to leave about 1 inch of space between the top of the turkey and the foil.  Crimp the foil to the long sides of the pan to secure.

  • 4

    Roast for 3 hours or until the thermometer reads 165°F.  Begin checking for doneness after 2 1/2 hours of the roasting time.  Let the turkey stand for 10 minutes before slicing.
