For the cracked peppercorns, bash them in a pestle and mortar.
We recommend using a digital probe thermometer to test when the turkey is done.
Make the pepper rub up to a week in advance and keep in a sealed jar in the fridge.
Michel says: “Take the bird out of the fridge 2 hours before cooking to take the chill off it.”
