Start the cooking low and slow at 325ºF with the breast side down, Denton says. When theres about one hour left in the cook time (the bird should still be fairly raw), carefully turn it over using tongs and a clean kitchen towel (try not to tear the skin). Then turn up the oven to finish cooking at 400º as you normally would. "Youll see you wont need to baste it anymore, and it will turn out super juicy.".

Overnight 20-22lb Turkey. Made this today for the guys at the Air Force Base who worked Christmas Day. Turned out very moist. Will try again--cooked upside down, flipped back to "right" for the ast 30-45 mins to brown. JUICY breast this way (heehee).
