Combine all of the ingredients for the stuffing in a food processor and give a few good chops.
Clean the turkey inside and out and pat dry. Place the turkey on a meat rack and loosen the skin from the meat. Place the stuffing by small handfuls under the skin, pushing the stuffing down. Rub the skin down with the rub and place the bacon strips all around the top of the turkey.
Place the turkey in the oven and bake for about 1 ½ hours or 20 minutes per lb.. Let the turkey rest for about 10 minutes before slicing.
