   12      lbs           turkey -- defrosted * see note
      1/2  c             water
      1/2  c             dry sherry
                         ----Basting Sauce----
    2      tbsps         dry sherry
    1      tsp           garlic -- crushed
      1/4  tsp           black pepper
    1      tsp           poultry seasoning
    1 1/2  tsps          paprika
    1      tsp           brown sugar
 Preheat oven to 325. Transfer turkey to a rack in a large roasting pan.
 Return the legs to the band of skin or wire. Fold the wings back and
 underneath the bird. Pour the water and 1/2 cup sherry into the bottom of
 the roasting pan. Combine remaining sherry, garlic, black pepper, poultry
 seasoning, paprika, and brown sugar in a mixing bowl. Brush over the skin
 of the turkey. Completely enclose the turkey in aluminum foil, crimping the
 foil around the edges of the pan to seal. Bake for 3 to 4 hours. During the
 last 30 minutes of cooking, remove foil and baste with pan juices. When
 turkey is done, a thermometer inserted in the thigh will read 180 to 185,
 and the drumsticks will move easily in the sockets. Remove turkey from the
 oven, and allow it to sit, loosely covered with foil, for 20 minutes before
                    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

 NOTES : *Remove the package containing the giblets and neck from the
 cavities of the turkey (you may have to release the legs from a band of
 skin or a wire in order to remove the giblets and neck). Rinse the turkey,
 inside and out, and dry it with paper towels. Trim off any excess fat.
