This is the flavorful turkey rub recipe I used for my Thanksgiving bird of 2005.
The secret of the success of any poultry rub is to get it under the skin.
That way it will be absorbed into the flesh more easily than if it were just rubbed onto the skin.

I use a portion of this poultry rub dry, dusting it inside the body cavity. Here's the recipe.
Mix all of the dry ingredients together. Dust the body cavity of the turkey with one tablespoon of the dry turkey rub. Add the remaining dry mix to the oil, combining well. Smear this wet rub under the skin of the breast, and all over the outer surface of the skin as well.
