Easy, Perfect Roast Turkey and Gravy

Perfect Roast Turkey with Gravy
Perfect Roast TurkeyMatt Taylor-Gross

This is the easiest and most satisfying roast turkey you can make, simple enough for beginners but no less rewardingly juicy, flavorful, and golden brown than other more complicated techniques. There is no need to tie the legs or tuck the wings, and no basting necessary. But if you simply cannot imagine not basting your bird, use melted duck fat or olive oil, not the juices from the pan (their wetness can prevent the turkey’s skin from crisping).
