Instructions Checklist
  • Two days before the big day, mix ingredients in a bowl and rub all over turkey, getting into every nook and cranny. Place on a rimmed baking sheet and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate, flipping over after a day. Let sit at room temperature for 1 hour before cooking. Pat dry with paper towels (no need to rinse) before roasting for maximum crispness.
