Amount Measure Ingredient, Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
turkey, washed and dried
thyme, dried, crumbled
basil, dried, crumbled
pepper, black
pepper, cayenne
pepper, white
butter, softened

Rub turkey with butter. Wrap ends of legs and wings with aluminum foil to prevent burning while cooking.

Sprinkle salt, thyme, basil, and three peppers (black, red and white) onto turkey and rub in well.

Preheat oven to 500. Place turkey in oven and cook at 500 until honey-colored (10-20 minutes). Leave uncovered.

Lower heat to 200 and cook 40-50 minutes per pound. Baste occasionally.

Note: Do NOT stuff this turkey, due to low cooking temperature. Cook dressing separately.
