To create the marinade, combine the chicken broth with the lemon juice, English mustard powder, 1/2 cup melted butter, 1 clove garlic and ginger in a bowl and stir the mixture together. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. This gives the flavors a chance to blend.
To make the rub, combine 1 cup softened butter with the rosemary, thyme and two small garlic cloves in a separate bowl. Mix as evenly as possible.
Separate the skin of the turkey from the meat by carefully running your hand under it. Using a spoon, spread the rub mixture evenly under the skin around various parts of the turkey.
Pour the marinade into an injector and inject it into the fleshiest parts of the turkey. Change the angle of the needle at various times to hit as many areas as possible.
Use a brush to spread the olive oil around the turkey and season it with salt and pepper. Place the turkey in a large pan and cover it with plastic wrap. Refrigerate the turkey for 12 to 24 hours before serving.
