That sounds good, sort of a 'dry-brining'. I've just never liked working stuff under the skin, so I brine instead. I think booze in the brine also helps 'inject' the flavors, since the alcohol can enter the cells (water-soluble).
The baking stone is key to holding the heat steady, I might try that on the next bird.
Baking powder? Helps crisp the skin maybe?

I think the 'oven-off' technique only works with birds in the 12-14 lb range, but that's what most people get. I don't know how anybody cooks a 20+ lb turkey!

 
We used to brine but that got old with big birds and no place to let 'em soak.

I have an injector and have used it with butter, brandy, and broth. But that stuff leaks out almost immediately. Maybe I'm not using it correctly.

The osmosis that occurs with dry brining is slow. Injection, not so much. I also dry brine beef roasts, and sometimes pork roasts.

Yes, the baking powder to crisp the skin. I'm not sure I liked the texture of the skin, though, and I'm a big fan of crispy skin.

With the spatchcocking method I use, I also use a very simple dry brine: Kosher salt and baking powder sprinkled over the splayed bird overnight.  Draws out the moisture from the bird, and then the salted liquid seeps back in - and it makes the skin super crispy!

I tried a new technique last year and it turned out to be wonderfully delicious.

2 TBS kosher salt and 4 tsp sugar mixed and rubbed under the skin on the breast, thighs, and in the cavity. Let sit uncovered in the fridge for 24-48 hours.

Set baking stone on the rack, set the roasting pan on top of that, and heat the oven to 500°F, preheating at least 30 minutes.

Dry turkey with paper towels and mix 1 1/2 TBS vegetable oil with 1 tsp baking powder. Rub this mixture all over turkey skin. Cover breast with double layer of foil.

Remove roasting pan from oven. Drizzle 2 tablespoons oil into roasting pan. Place turkey, breast side up, in pan and return pan to oven. Reduce oven temperature to 425°F and roast for 45 minutes. 

Remove foil, reduce oven temperature to 325°F, and continue to roast until breast registers 160°F and drumsticks/thighs register 175°F, 1 to 1 1/2 hours longer.

Very easy and pretty foolproof. Though I have to concede that I've never farqued up a turkey. Forgoing the rack and preheating the pan makes for a jump start on the dark meat.

YMMV

We did that too! GE single/double oven. Went to the store with our roasting pan and rack, and then had to take a tape measure to the grocery to measure the circumference of the bird. With the new method I don't use the rack so I get a couple of inches back. I used to cook 20 lb. + birds but now, 18 and under.

Well, I did have to buy a new sheet pan and drip rack because, splayed, the turkeys I've cooked overlapped the sheet pans I already had.  And I did measure the stove to make sure I got the biggest pan that would fit. I don't think I've ever gotten a turkey any larger than 21 pounds.

Smoking and baking are different from grilling though. Grilling is too hot to cook the chicken through without burning the outside. You can bake/smoke it first then grill it to crisp the skin, or grill first then bake.

Our never-fail whole turkey recipe involves putting the turkey in a very hot oven, cook for one hour, then turn off the oven and let it cook the rest of the way. Perfect every time.

short on time this year so i'm delegating 

 
Yes, we brine the bird. I've got a recipe with bourbon in it...

You need a roasting pan with a lid. I'll see if I can find our recipe(s). 

I tried smoking one some years ago and totally ruined it. This technique is much more reliable.

This brine recipe looks about right: https://www.rachaelraymag.com/recipe/rachael-ray-whiskey-brined-turkey

This is one version of the 'oven-off' technique: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/trisha-yearwood/no-baste-no-bother-roasted-turkey-recipe-2109446
