Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. To prepare the turkey, remove the neck and giblets. Tuck the wings underneath the turkey. Stuff the turkey with onion, garlic, rosemary, apple, lemon, and thyme. Tie the feet together with twine.
In a small bowl combine the butter, garlic, thyme, oregano, rosemary, and salt and pepper. Rub evenly over the turkey and underneath the skin.
Place the turkey in a roasting pan and cook for 15 minutes for each pound or until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees and the juices run clear. Let the turkey rest for 20 minutes before carving.
Save the drippings for the turkey and make this turkey gravy if desired.
