Season turkey with salt and pepper. Place 1/3 marinade inside turkey. Gently place 1/3 marinade under skin, being very careful not to tear the skin. Brush remaining marinade all over bird. Transfer to nonreactive pan. Cover with aluminum foil and refrigerate overnight. Place remaining ingredients including 2 cups stock in roasting pan. Unwrap turkey and place on rack in pan. Roast turkey at 325F degrees 3 1/2 to 4 hours, basting frequently with pan juices and adding additional broth if needed. When turkey is done, let stand 20 minutes before carving. Strain pan juices and serve separately.
