What You'll Need
- 1 (12-pound) turkey
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 cup packed light brown sugar
- 3/4 cup orange juice
- 2 oranges, sliced 1/4-inch thick
What to Do
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Remove giblets and neck from turkey; reserve for later use. Rinse turkey with cold water, pat dry, and place in a roasting pan breast side up. Sprinkle salt and pepper evenly over turkey.
- In a medium bowl, combine brown sugar and orange juice; mix well, then brush half of mixture over turkey. Place a few orange slices in the cavity and around turkey. If you would like, now would be the perfect time to tie the legs together with kitchen twine.
- Cover turkey with aluminum foil and roast 1-1/2 hours. Remove foil and brush with remaining orange glaze. Continue to cook uncovered 1-1/2 to 2 more hours, or until thermometer reached 180 degrees in thickest part of thigh, basting with pan drippings every 30 minutes.
- Remove turkey from pan and place on a cutting board to rest 15 minutes before carving.
