For the holidays, you could say thank you to some of the people who write free software you use, especially software that isn't hugely popular.

πŸ— garlic-herb butter under the breast skin
πŸ— seasoning salt on top
πŸ— no cover on the roasting pan, no basting, don't touch it except to tent with foil when the skin gets dark

Ok, I've made cranberry sauce and an herb butter for the turkey, and I am READY for Thanksgiving
