Ohiq Burkey 

1 10lb whole turkey
1 lb uncooked bacon
6 tbs butter
1/2 tsp basil
8 cloves garlic
1 tsp oregano
4 tbs parsley
1/2 tsp thyme
1/2 tsp sage
2 tbs honey
1/2 cup brown sugar packed
1/4 tsp each of salt + pepper
10 toothpicks

Option 1: Smoked 

Preheat smoker to 225 to 250 degrees F°. Remove the turkey from the refrigerator and remove the giblets and neck from the cavity.
Clean and rinse the bird thoroughly. Pat dry. Butter the bird inside the cavity and out. Apply the Crooked River BBQ + Beer rub
generously under the skin, and a modest dusting on the outside of the bird. Place bacon over the turkey, wrapping legs. Secure with
toothpicks. Smoke at 225 to 250 degrees F° for 10 hours. Baste the bird every 1 to 2 hours with the juices from the bottom of the
roasting pan. Remove from smoker, carve and serve.

Option 2: Baked 

Preheat oven to 500 degrees F°. Remove the turkey from the refrigerator and remove the giblets and neck from the cavity. Clean and
rinse the bird thoroughly. Pat dry. Butter the bird inside the cavity and out. Apply the Crooked River BBQ + Beer rub generously under
the skin, and a modest dusting on the outside of the bird. Add 1-2 cups of water in the roasting pan, then roast the turkey in the oven
for 30 minutes. Remove turkey from the oven and turn the heat to 350 degrees F°. Cover the turkey in the bacon top. Put back in the
oven and continue to cook for 2 more hours. Remove from oven, carve and serve.
