Peanut butter roasted turkey?

I've found a recipe for roast turkey coated on the skin with a peanut butter mixture. Intrigued as it could create a nice, crispy, brown skin. Has anybody tried this? What was the result?

The only thing "peanut" that has ever come in contact with a turkey I've cooked, is the peanut oil that it has been deep fried in. The skin was really crispy!

I don't think it would work any better than butter or oil.

I detest peanut butter so I'm probably not the best one to give an opinion but the thought of it smeared on a turkey sounds really bizarre at best.

The only thing I've ever had with a peanut butter sauce and a bird is chicken satay and I love it, but I can't picture that working with a whole turkey.

Just curious, what does the peanut butter mixture consist of?

I'm very fond of PB but don't fancy a turkey smeared in it. Wouldn't it burn before the bird was cooked?

I suppose it might improve those horrid tasteless mass-produced turkeys that live in the freezer cabinet in the supermarket apparently from one Christmas to the next. Anything would improve them - including frying in used engine oil!

been around for years. how many . . .?

well, the recipe starts with 'take a 10-12 lb turkey . . .'
when was the last time you found a 10 lb turkey?

it's a 'paste' rub - good / bad / no clue.

but the instructions tell you to cook the 10-12 lb turkey to 180-185'F

been around a while, did I mention....?

turkey pb flavored jerky it makes. I suppose, never went there.

Is this the one you're referring to? Roast Turkey In Peanut Butter Recipe - Food.com - 125748

It was posted in 2005 and no one has reviewed it. I guess no one is brave enough to try it
