I've used the Mad Max turkey method a couple of times and it comes out great...
If I'm not doing a Mad Max, I fill the turkey cavity with chunks of carrots, onions, celery, lemons and oranges along with some fresh herbs. Then i rub the outside with olive oil, garlic, rosemary and salt and pepper. The, before cooking, I ice the breasts as suggested in the Mad Max method so it cooks at about the same time as the thighs. Then i cook it at 325-ish until the thigh is at 165 and the breast at 150 and let it rest for 30 minutes before carving.
