Turkey just out of oven result

I do go on about the 'low and slow' roasting method I know.
Yesterday I wet brined this little turkey for about six hours. Then wiped dry and put in the fridge overnight. This morning I preheated the oven to 200 F. I sprinkled a bit of salt and pepper on the bird. That's all. No stuffing. Then into the oven at six am. I checked the internal temp at 10:00 am It was 130 F. I just checked the internal temp now and it's 148 F. The internal juices ran clear. The skin needed a little browning so I cranked up the heat to 'Broil'. In a couple of minutes the skin turned a nice golden brow. It's now 11:06 am. Here's the result"

    1. Mmm, looks great! What did you serve it with? If doing roast veg do you just wait till the bird is out of the oven, then turn up the temperature so you can put the veg in?

        I parboiled all the veg first. After the bird came out I roasted the veg tossed gently with olive oil and a couple of tablespoons of clarified butter and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar fresh thyme and rosemary springs at 375 F. The timing worked fine.
