Lynchburg Goblin’ Good Turkey

November 20, 2012


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.
