Roasted Turkey

1 stick of butter, softened
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 tablespoon of garlic powder
½ teaspoon of salt
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
2 tablespoons minced garlic
1 (15-pound) turkey
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
In a small mixing bowl combine the butter, black pepper, garlic powder, salt, parsley and minced garlic. Thoroughly rinse and dry the turkey. Tuck the wings underneath the body and place the turkey in a roasting pan. Rub the butter mixture all over the turkey.  
Roast for 18 minutes per pound. The turkey is done when an instant-read thermometer is inserted into the thickest part of the thigh and registers 165 degrees F. and the juices run clear. Remove from the oven and loosely tent with foil. Let rest for 20 minutes before carving.
