Place oven rack in lowest position. Preheat oven to 325°F. Place roasting rack in shallow roasting pan. Mix first 6 ingredients in small bowl.
Place turkey, breast-side up, in prepared pan. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of the seasoning mixture inside turkey. Stuff with celery, onion, orange and bay leaves. Brush turkey breast with oil. Spread remaining seasoning mixture over entire surface and under skin of turkey. Add stock to pan; cover loosely with heavy duty foil.
Roast 1 hour. Remove foil. Roast 2 to 2 1/2 hours longer or until internal temperature reaches 165°F (175°F in thigh), basting occasionally with pan juices. Remove turkey from oven.

tasty & easy
"Best whole chicken ever" is what my kids said when I followed this recipe (adjusting amounts accordingly) for a whole chicken instead of a turkey. I brined the chicken overnight, followed the recipe for seasoning and filling the cavity, and cooked/smoked it in my Big Green Egg. It looked great and tasted great! This will be my go-to recipe since my boys said I should never cook a whole chicken any other way. Thanks for a simple, flavorful and successful recipe!
