Perhaps you are wondering why, with other recipes, you had to arise, pre-dawn, to begin to prepare your Turkey. I shall tell you why. Two things happened: you stuffed your turkey and you did not take measures to give it moisture.
We shall resolve this by following this Recipe:
Your Stuffing is being prepared separately in order to allow your Turkey an even heating process: it is being caressed with heat over, around and throughout without the block which stuffing creates.
Stuffing: when one stuffs a Turkey: the stuffing literally sucks out the moisture! Think of the many Dry Turkeys, which you have suffered through! Gravy and more gravy maybe helps a bit but, you still have a dry Turkey! Dry leftovers, too!
Prepare your Stuffing separately and just make sure to add enough stock to keep it moist: stuffing is easy to work with if you think of it as a side dish.
