If you miss cooking the stuffing in the bird, you can get the same flavor by drizzling a little bit of the turkey drippings into the stuffing before serving. And if you insist on serving it directly from the carcass, stuff it into the turkey after it is cooked. But whatever you do, don’t stuff the turkey when it is raw. You will – Grill screen lengthen the cooking time unnecessarily, and you will cause the surface to overcook before the interior ever reaches a safe temperature.
