When it come to roasting stuff, I have a few basic rules that I follow. Marinate and baste! I'll marinate the turkey one day ahead in very basic stuff. Just throw in salt, pepper and Worcestershire sauce till you feel that the thing is coated nicely and leave it to marinate in the fridge till you start roasting it.
Then before roasting poke some rosemary all over the chicken. People say that it gives the turkey some sorta aroma, I think it just looks really cool and professional! After that just put bacon all over the turkey and anchor those babies down with a toothpick. For the stuffing I just use the one from the supermarket. Stuff that thing right into the turkey's behind and tie the legs together with a wire.
Most of the stuff here is taken from various recipes all over the web. I checked out how people would roast their turkey and sorta came to a decision on how I'm gonna do it. Just do what Jamie Oliver does in his kitchen; grab stuff, throw them in and BOOM you got yourself something to eat.
