- While the turkey is cooking, prepare the glaze by melting butter in a 1- to 2-quart pot set over medium heat. When the butter just starts to foam, add the pecans, brown sugar, and honey, stirring until the mixture forms a syrup. Add cider and Wild Turkey 101, briefly raise just to the boiling pot, then remove from heat and let cool.
- About 15 minutes before the turkey is ready, apply half the prepared glaze to the bird with a basting brush.
- When the turkey is done, remove it from the oven and brush on the remaining glaze. Let cool 15 to 25 minutes before carving.
