I use a shallow pan too, though I sometimes cover the bird early so it doesn’t get too browned, too soon. Most of those bottled or canned gravies just are not that good, even the packaged ones are lacking, though they are mildly better. imo
Got a couple of Thanksgiving stories. A friend of my mom’s cleaned her sink then proceeded to rinse her turkey in the sink and then went about preparing the stuffing and stuffed the bird.
While the bird was in the oven she was going to do the dishes but couldn’t find the stopper. Uh huh, she found it when she pulled the stuffing from the bird. How clean do you think the rubber bottom of that metal stopper was???? eeewww
Another story. That same cousin of mine, we went to visit my sister and her boy brought along his bb gun and bb’s. When we came home he put his bb’s in a plastic shopping bag since the box ripped. So they get home and he takes the box out of the bag and off he goes to his room. The bag end up in the counter and a few days later (Thanksgiving Day) she opened a big can of Turkey gravy because they deep fry theirs and they have no juices to work with. Well, her husband came through the kitchen and didn’t want the gravy sitting there open, so he grabs the plastic bag, and tents it over the grave can.
Later when they went to eat, they found a bunch of bb’s in their gravy. We joked about that for a long time.
