Default Leftover Turkey Broth Uses?

Well I smoked an 18 lb. bird this morning in a roasting pan, and decided to pour off the liquid gold and save it for...something.

So what to do? Soup/Stew stock? I know it's got to be good for something but I'm not sure what to use it for. Got it double bagged in zip lock freezer bags and will stick it in the deep freeze until I can figure something out. Any ideas?

The easiest thing that comes to mind is turkey noodle soup with your turkey leftovers.

You can also use it for different items that call for chicken stock/broth without any noticeable difference. I use my homemade chicken/turkey stocks in filipino dishes like Pancit and Aroz Caldo (filipino congee similar to rice porridge)

We tried making some stock out of a smoked bird once. The smoke flavor / odor was a little overwhelming, and I would have a hard time recommending it. Just my opinion.

I did a little research on the interwebs and saw a suggestion for using the pan drippings as a mix-in for mashed potatoes. That seems doable. I like the turkey and dumplings idea a lot too.
