The Best Turkey on Planet Earth. Period.

1. Make a "mud" of 6 tbsp Herky Perky and 8 tbsp olive oil for a 12 lbs turkey. Double it for a bigger bird. You can also do 1 to 1.
2. Smear the bird inside and out, and under the skin, with the mud.
3. Wrap the bird in plastic wrap and keep it in the fridge overnight and up to 3 days (the longer, the better).
4. Don't rinse. Roast, smoke, or grill as you normally would. Shove some lemons, onions and herbs inside there if you want to get fancy-shmancy.
