Lynchburg Goblin’ Good Turkey
1 whole Turkey 12 – 20 lbs. giblets removed.
1 large lemon, cut into halves
1 large Onion diced
2 Carrots diced
2 Celery stalks diced
1 Granny Smith Apple chopped
1 sprig of fresh Rosemary
1/2 bottle of Historic Lynchburg Goblin’ Good Turkey Rub
Salt and Cracked Black Pepper to taste
Butter or Olive or Vegetable oil
Rub butter or oil over the skin of the Turkey inside and outside until it is completely coated. Sprinkle liberally with Historic Lynchburg Goblin’ Good Turkey Rub, and Salt and Black Pepper inside and outside to taste. Slide lemon halves under the skin with the peel side up, one on each side. This way the juice from the lemon will release into the breasts. Place Onion, Carrots, Celery, Apple and sprig of Rosemary into turkey cavity. Pull skin together and pin together with small skewers.Heat oven to 350 degrees and cover Turkey and bake for 30-45 minutes. Remove cover and continue to roast until juices run clear, basting every 15-20 minutes until you reach an internal temperature of 180 degrees.
