  3. In a small mixing bowl, mix together the salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, thyme and paprika.
  4. Rub or brush the turkey with the oil all over then rub the spice rub all over the turkey, top, bottom and all sides.

Close the basket and cook the turkey for about 10-12 minutes, flip it over and cook it for 10 more minutes on the other side. Cook it until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F.
