Juicy Roast Turkey

I don't have a picture of this, but it was a really good turkey. It didn't get all dried out like they normally do, and I think it had better flavor.

1/4 c. ground mustard
2 TBS. Worchestershire sauce
2 TBS. olive oil
1/2 tsp. white vinegar
1 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
1 turkey
1 medium onion, quartered
2 celery stalks, quartered
Parsley (I used dried)
2 bacon strips
1/4 c. butter, softened
Additional olive oil
2 c. chicken broth
1 c. water

Combine the first six ingredients in a small bowl; stir to form a smooth paste. Brush over inside and outside of turkey. Cover and refrigerate for 1 to 24 hours.
Place turkey in a large roasting pan. Place the onion, celery, and parsley inside turkey cavity. Lay the bacon across the breast. Spread butter between legs and body. Tie drumsticks together. Brush the turkey with oil . Pour broth and water into pan. Bake uncovered at 325 for 3 1/2 to 4 hours or until it's done. (My turkey luckily had the little red pop up thing). Make sure to baste the turkey frequently. Remove from oven and discard the bacon.
