    I am planning to make the Good Eats Roast Turkey and Best Gravy Ever but have a question: If the turkey is roast on a baking sheet, how do you navigate this very shallow pan to make the gravy using the drippings? Normally, I do the gravy in the roaster that I make the turkey in but a baking sheet will not hold much liquid. Suggestions? Deglaze the baking sheet and transfer to a saucepan?
