I knew there was a reason why my mother always put the stuffed turkey in the oven about 6 am and it wasn't ready to eat til 1 pm. The stuffing was delicious but the turkey was so very dry. I expect the turkey to be fixed the same way this Thanksgiving when we eat at her home; but mine will be a brined and deep fried turkey at my house.
Call it lazy or conformity but ever since I started doing Thanksgiving I have never filled the turkey with stuffing; I just bake it separately in the oven. Less mess, less fuss, and no worries about it reaching 160 degrees inside a bird.
Not certain about the possibility of taking the stuffing out of a bird and heating it to 160 degrees; never thought about doing it.
Irregardless, have a great Thanksgiving!
