How to Rub a Turkey

In a bowl, combine desired rub ingredients. Let sit overnight for best flavor.

Pat turkey dry with paper towels.

Place turkey on a rack inside a large baking pan. Apply rub mixture evenly over the turkey, making sure to get under the skin.

Discard any leftover rub that came into contact with the raw turkey.
