The butter on and under the skin may darken things a bit, just so you know, but it will sure make the taste and tenderness pretty awesome.
I sometimes even inject butter or herb butter into the turkey and rub the "oozings" all over and under the skin. Pretty good stuff.
I think this one was rubbed with butter. You can see it got a little darker. The smoke will do this too, depending on the amount and quality of smoke.
