RPM Steak’s Roasted Turkey

Serves 8-10

One 12-15 lb. whole turkey, brined (optional) and patted dry
4 tablespoons kosher salt
2 tablespoons fresh ground black pepper
½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
½ cup garlic-sage butter (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Fit a large, heavy roasting pan with a roasting rack; pour in 4 cups water.
  2. Pat the turkey dry with paper towels. Rub the bird all over with butter; season with salt and pepper.
  3. If using garlic-sage butter, place pats of the compound butter under the skin all around the bird.
  4. Roast the turkey breast side up, uncovered, for 30 minutes. Reduce oven temp to 325°F and continue cooking the turkey until it reaches an internal temperature of 165°F. (The juices should run clear when the thermometer is removed.)
  5. Let the turkey rest at least 20 minutes before carving.
