Using bacon on your roast turkey

jgg13 | Nov 14, 200701:09 PM     13

I came across some tidbits where people were swearing by putting bacon strips across the breast of their turkey (actually, I think there's something like that on the 'neo-slacker's guide to thanksgiving' on this site, but it doesn't really work well on my browser here).

Has anyone tried this? It seems to be the general idea that you place the strips on the breast and then remove them in the final 30 mins or so. Does this make the turkey bacon-y? How well does it work?
