 Slow Roasted Turkey

14 pounds turkey -- washed and dried
thyme -- dried -- crumbled
basil -- dried -- crumbled
black pepper
cayenne pepper
white pepper
butter -- softened

Rub turkey with butter. Wrap ends of legs and wings with aluminum foil to prevent burning while cooking. Sprinkle salt, thyme, basil, and three peppers (black, red and white) onto turkey and rub in well. Preheat oven to 500F. Place turkey in oven and cook at 500 until honey-colored (10-20 minutes). Leave uncovered. Lower heat to 200F and cook 40-50 minutes per pound. Baste occasionally. NOTE: Do NOT stuff this turkey, due to the low cooking temperature. Cook dressing separate.
