There are many views on how best to cook a turkey. Some cooks roast at low temperature overnight, others at high temperature for a short time, and still others brown at high temperature, then finish in a moderate oven. We recommend the following method for a moist, crisp-skinned bird.
- 1 (10–12-lb.) turkey
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- Herbed Corn Bread Stuffing
- 6 tbsp. softened butter
