  • Step 1

    Stir together paprika, chili powder, salt, onion powder, garlic powder, mustard powder, cumin, oregano, Truvia blend and pepper.
  • Step 2

    Preheat oven to 400°F. Remove neck and giblets from turkey; reserve turkey for roasting pan. Pat turkey dry with paper towel. Rub turkey all over, including under skin and inside cavity, with butter and seasoning mixture.
  • Step 3

    Place on rack in roasting pan. Add neck, giblets, onion, celery and garlic to pan; roast for 30 minutes. Reduce heat to 350°F; roast for 2.5 hours or until thermometer inserted into thickest part of the breast registers 170°F. If turkey browns too quickly, cover loosely with foil.
  • Step 4

    Carefully transfer turkey to cutting board and tent loosely with foil. Let stand 30 minutes before carving.
  • Step 5

    Meanwhile, skim off fat in roasting pan; stir in broth and barbecue sauce. Use your favorite flavored barbecue sauces, such as spicy or sweet.
  • Step 6

    Cook over medium heat, stirring to scrape up brown bits from bottom of pan; bring to boil. Whisk cornstarch with 2 tablespoons of water; stir into pan. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer for 6-8 minutes or until thickened and flavorful. Strain and serve with turkey.
