Boneless whole Turkey?

Well I ordered a whole turkey from a vendor and this morning I went to prep it for the Mad Max turkey recipe. I took it out of the package and noticed a rod running through it. Never seeing this before I pulled the rod out and the turkey fell completely apart. i sat there for an hour trying to figure out how to get it back together. I tied it up but that didn't work too well. I didn't know how to put the herbs, carrots, celery and all the other stuff in there because it had fallen apart. I turned it on its back and the turkey completely flopped open and that is when I realized that there wasn't a carcass. WHAT IN THE WORLD?!!! The legs were there but the wings are not. So what I have done is I turned the turkey on its back and just placed all the herbs and stuff where I thought the cavity may be. Then I had my wife pull the turkey together while I tied it up. It looks like crap. to help keep it in place I put in a V rack.
Another thing that irritated me was that there isn't any innards bag. WTH!!!!
We will just have to see how it turns out. I have no idea if the cook time will even be the same.
