For rackless turkey roasting....

Ruth Reichl's new show had a segment in Italy in which a duck was roasted without a rack - it sat directly on the oven rack, with the roasting pan on the oven rack one slot lower. This certainly made a mess of the oven, but it allowed for wonderful browning of the bird, with the bottom getting as crispy skin as the breast had. If you didn't have a rack, and were planning on cleaning the oven anyway, this would be an option. I imagine the bird cooks faster, too.
