How to make it
- Mix together all ingredients for Bayou Spice Rub.
- Rub on turkey and under skin(I loosen the skin and put my hand under to push spice around under the skin)
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- Place turkey in roaster pan and bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes.
- Lower heat to 225 and bake for 8 hour or overnight, basting with juices every so often ( I do this several times before going to bed and then twice when I get up in the morning)
- Check turkey to make sure it is completely cooked.
- If not, continue cooking at 350 degrees until cooked.
- In sauce pan, melt butter.
- Add brown sugar and bbq sauce.
- Cook over low/med heat for 5 minutes.
- Stir in bourbon and continue to cook for a few minutes longer.
- Remove turkey from oven.
- Brush on sauce and return to oven and cook for 5 to 10 minutes longer.
- Use juices as a side sauce. This can be thickened if desired by adding bbq sauce to it.
- Before serving, pour a little of the juices over the turkey.
- Let sit a few minutes before carving.
