1/2 Cup sugar

10 black peppercorns, whole

1 Medium orange, peeled and juiced

1 Gallon cold water

Turkey Prep

2 bay leaves

Sprigs fresh rosemary

4 Sprigs fresh thyme

2 Medium carrots, peeled, cut into 2-inch pieces

2 Medium white onions, peeled, cut into 2-inch pieces

2 celery ribs, peeled, cut into 2-inch pieces

         Place herbs and vegetables in body cavity and secure.



1 Pound unsalted butter, softened

2 Medium oranges, juiced

1-1/2 Teaspoons salt

1/4 Teaspoon pepper

1/2 Cup maple syrup

1 Tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped

1/2 Tablespoon fresh thyme, chopped

2 Cloves garlic, finely chopped 


Cooking Procedure 

  1. Combine butter, orange juice, salt, pepper, maple syrup, rosemary, thyme and garlic in a large bowl.
  2. With fingers, slowly massage the compound butter into the skin of the turkey until well absorbed. Fold wings under the back of the turkey and return legs to the tucked position.
  3. Turkey may be cooked in a 325 degree F oven or on a rotisserie.
    • If roasting in a thermal oven, cook on a rack for approximately 3 hours or until the internal temperature of the turkey reaches 170 degrees F in the breast and 180 degrees F in the thigh.
    • If cooking by the rotisserie method, thread turkey evenly on the rotisserie-spit fork using a counterweight to achieve an even balance. Place a drip pan in the center of the grill beneath the area where the turkey juices will drip. Cook the turkey over indirect medium heat in a covered rotisserie. If cooking with charcoal, replenish briquettes with about 15 briquettes every hour, as needed, to maintain medium heat. Cook until the internal temperature of the turkey reaches 170 degrees F in the breast and 180 degrees F in the thigh (about 3 hours).
  4. Allow turkey to rest for about 15 minutes.
  5. Remove vegetables and herbs from the cavity prior to carving.

Place slices on a platter and garnish with oranges.
