Directions:
If turkey is frozen, thaw in wrapping. Remove wrapping and free legs and tail. Remove giblets and neck pieces. Rinse turkey with cold water and pat dry with paper towel. Season inside and out with salt. Quarter 1 onion and 2 or 3 sticks celery and put inside turkey then fasten legs under skin at tail, fold wings under back. Grease broiler pan with butter (do not use rack). Make tent out of aluminum foil. Cover turkey and pan. Press foil at tail and neck. Put oven on 325 degrees. Cook depending on size of turkey. Put litter string under turkey to lift turkey out of pan. I cook 13 lb turkey 5 hours. Take foil off the last 45 minutes so turkey will brown. Let turkey set about 45 minutes covered with foil before carving.

Melt 1 sticks margarine and take pastry brush and baste as turkey cooks. Put plenty of butter before you put it in the oven, then take out 2 or 3 times during cooking time and baste.

Take turkey out of pan and put in serving dish. I use the drippings to make dressing.
