No you sure don't. I basted mine with butter when I put it in as he suggests, but that's it. Watch it closely, mine cooked at the speed of light. Best turkey ever.

There is no reason to baste. Basting does not penetrate & only cools the oven when you open the door.

I soak a cheesecloth in melted butter, lemon zest and lemon juice and drape the turkey with it. It bastes it and the skin comes out brown and crispy without opening the oven door.
