I then add the turkey to the pan, fill it with stuffing, fill the pan around the turkey with carrots, onions and celery, I add my spices some more rubbed sage, black pepper, some butter atop the turkey along with a couple tablespoons of honey. I then return about 1/2 gallon of the former bacon slab broth to the roast pan and about 1/2 gallon fresh water. I cook the turkey over night in the covered roast pan at about 220F again for about 8 to 10 hours.
By morning the turkey is still intact, but so moist it nearly falls apart into it's seperate pieces when you move it. I remove the stuffing and then turkey seperating it into it's pieces placing on a platter and then I combine the turkey broth to what is left of the bacon slab broth and use that for my gravy base and for my meat sauces.
This makes for the juiciest tastiest turkey I have ever eaten.... my mouth is watering just thinking about it.... I may have to make a test run or two before thanksgiving.... again... lol...
