I haven't tried that recipe, but I guess it's of sound principle. I like Alton Brown's method. Start the turkey off in a 500° oven for 30 minutes, and then finish it off at 350°. It gets pulled when the bird hits 160° internal temp if memory serves. He also puts a piece of canola oiled aluminum foil on the breast only after the first half hour as extra insurance against drying out the white meat. I've used that method for a few years now and it, in conjunction with brining, always produces a nicely colored, seasoned, and moist bird.
