For the turkey
  1. • 1 tablespoon salt
  2. • 1 tablespoon celery seeds
  3. • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  4. • 1 (4 to 8 pound) bone in turkey breast, thawed if frozen
  5. • 3/4 medium yellow onion, cut into 3 pieces
For the serving sauces
  1. • ½ cup Frank’s Red Hot sauce
  2. • ½ cup unsalted butter
  3. • 2 tablespoons water
