Houston, we have a problem: indirect grilling a turkey if gas grill is small

So I've got everything ready to do a test turkey dinner tomorrow, but reading all the various grilling recipes, we've run into a potential problem: our gas grill has only 2 burners and is not that big. Our turkey is just under 13 pounds and could sit directly on the grill on one side while we have the other side's burners on. Problem with that is that the 9x13 disposable drip pan we have that would fit under the grate is just slightly smaller than the turkey itself. Would that work? Is it a problem if I lose some of the drippings? (I was hoping to get drippings to make gravy.)

Our other option--which we were kinda hoping to do--was to put the turkey in a regular roasting pan with rack. But the problem with this is that the pan is big and wouldn't fit on just half of the grill. So how to grill indirectly when part of the pan will have to be over the flames?

Do we give up and put it in the oven?
