Interesting recipe, as in the "Soul food" spice rub (with the ingredients as noted by another reviewer) was was well worth making,definitely a keeper for poultry rubs, very complex flavour. I'll be making more of that.
I solved the bacon overcooking problem with a simple foil tent sorta idea about 1/2 hour in. The bird and bacon came out nicely browned.
That all said, I wouldn't bother making this again, the bacon fat overpowered everything, and really, if you want to taste bacon, don't bother with the stuffing at all, grease/oil will cover citrus and apple flavours every time.
The bird was very moist, but I think that's more about the cook in bag technique and the quality of the turkey in the bag than using a bacon wrap.
