    My friend and I tried this recipe the same day and our houses filled up with smoke....I had the stove fan running the entire time and still had to open windows to clear out the smoke.

      Probably from the butter....try placing the pan on lower rack

    this is how we do it in France, but I clarify the butter -less chance of burning- and I do not rely on a thermometer, but take the beast out, make an incision in between the thigh and the breast and with the flat of a knife, check to see if it- pulls away nicely, and if the juice runs clear. Everybody's oven is different -and their thermometers are too.
