Anybody else have a packet inserted inside the turkey that is for gravy? Two different brands that I am smoking had the packets(mostly liquid).

All the time, sorry to say I have never used one and throw them away, usually too much going on and everything is already planned

If I remember it is a base for gravy? I dont think it is ready to go, just that white bag with writing on it we are always going to do something with but always gets forgotten about

Yeah, most every frozen turkey I've ever bought had these gravy packets. They aren't bad if you doctor them up a bit, but I still prefer to make my own gravy.

I have added them to the pan drippings with great success. They are really just some thick stock from the factory with a flour or corn starch slurry from what I can tell - better than the average canned or dry mix BY FAR.... IMHO. Although the Mrs likes McCormicks poultry gray mix in the big plastic jar , only place I have ever seen it is Costco, [ they make a pretty good beef mix too ] but that too I add to drippings with giblets that have been cooked along with bird for real bird flavor.

I have used them as well.....I have never had a problem with them and they have been quite tasty. Just have to watch out becuase different companys will place them in different parts of the bird. Have found them in the inside or tucked under the skin where the neck was.
