BBQ Inspired Turkey & Gravy

I love roasted turkey.  There is something about the smell of a turkey roasting.  Preparing a turkey takes minimal effort and provides huge impact when it comes out of the oven.  However, just plain roasted turkey can get boring.  I have many different ways of infusing my roasted turkeys with flavor to suit my mood.  This is one of those recipes...

To begin you will need to make my BBQ Dry Rub.

BBQ Inspired Turkey & Gravy

1/2 cup of BBQ Dry Rub
2 tbs ground dry poultry seasoning
1 tbs seasoning salt
1/2 tbs black pepper
1/2 tbs garlic powder
12 to 20 lb turkey
3 cups chicken broth
3 to 4 tbs corn starch
turkey oven bag
2 tbs gluten free flour

Combine the first 5 ingredients.
Sprinkle and massage the rub on the turkey - inside and out.
Add the gluten free flour to the oven bag and shake around to coat.
Place the turkey into the oven bag.
Place the oven bag with the turkey into a large pan.
Pour the chicken broth into the bag with the turkey.
Make a few small slits in the top of the bag.
Bake at 350 degrees for 2 1/2 to 3 hours or until the turkey is done.
When the turkey is done break open the bag and let the turkey rest for 15 to 30 minutes.
After the turkey has rested pour off all of the drippings into a medium pot.
Skim off the excess fat from the top if desired.
Heat the drippings over medium heat until boil.
Meanwhile, mix together the corn starch with a little water.
Add the corn starch slurry into the boiling drippings and stir until thickened.
Carve your turkey and serve smothered with gravy alongside desired sides.
