southern style brown paper bag turkey


Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Ut elit tellus, luctus nec ullamcorper mattis, pulvinar dapibus leo.


  • 16 lb turkey or larger 
  • 3 tbs spicy Dan-O’s Seasoning 
  • 1 stick of butter 
  • ½ cup of vegetable oil 
  • Celery, onion, carrots, lemon
  • 1 large brown paper bag

Prep Time

20 Mins

Cook Time

160 Degrees Internal

Serving Size



  1. Thaw out your turkey based on the USDA recommendations and instructions on the package. 
  2. Prepare your turkey by removing gravy packs, giblets, and innards from the cavity. Stuff the cavity with whatever veggies you have on hand and sliced lemon. 
  3. Coat the brown paper bag in vegetable oil on both sides and set to the side. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees. 
  4. Melt ¾ of a stick of butter, and mix in 3 tbs of Spicy Dan-O’s Seasoning. Pour all over your bird and brush evenly. 
  5. Place the turkey breast-side-up in the brown paper bag, and make sure the seam of the bag is facing up. Close the opening of the bag by stapling it shut, or simply tucking it under the turkey. 
  6. Place paper bag turkey in roasting pan, and cook in the oven for roughly 10 mins per pound. Pull turkey when the popup timer goes off or when the bird reached 160 degrees in the deepest part of the breast. (note, keep track of where the popup timer is and carefully press that part of the bad to ensure it comes up). 
  7. Remove turkey from the oven and carefully remove it from the bag. Same some drippings to make gravy, and let turkey rest for about 45 minutes before carving. 
  8. Serve with gravy, rolls, and all of your holiday fixings. Enjoy!
