  • Summary

    Using miso on the turkey is a great way to get wonderfully moist meat — always a challenge at Thanksgiving. The skin doesn't get as crisp as it would without, but we think the succulent results are well worth the trade-off. The miso won't give the turkey an Asian flavor, but it will add a rich meatiness to the gravy. Don't use a brined or kosher turkey for this recipe or the bird will be too salty (miso has a high sodium content).

    Ingredients

    • 1 medium onion, quartered but left unpeeled
    • 1/2 cup miso (white or red fermented-soybean paste)
    • 1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, softened, plus additional melted butter (from 1/2 stick) if turkey drippings yield less than 1/2 cup fat
    • 1 teaspoon black pepper
    • 1 (12- to 14-lb) turkey, any feathers and quills removed with tweezers or needlenose pliers, and neck and giblets reserved for another use if desired
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1 cup water
    • 9 cupsturkey stock
    • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
    • 2 small metal picks or skewers; kitchen string; a 19- by 13-inch flameproof roasting pan with a rack; an instant-read thermometer
