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. Let stand 20 minutes. Transfer to platter or carving board and slice. Reserve pan juices to make gravy or to serve with turkey
"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!
