Herb Roasted Turkey Recipe

This is a delicious turkey recipe that can be done in the oven on roast or can be done on a smoker. Either way, you are left with delicious vegetables on the bottom and a crispy juicy turkey.

I apologize that I don’t have pictures of the finished product. I’m not sure how that happened, but I’ll take pictures the next time I make this.
