Turkey frying oil and seasoning the bird?

I've got a TON of bacon fat that I have been saving up for 6 months to use to fry my turkey for thanksgiving. I have a two questions:

1) since the bacon I used was already seasoned, should I still season the bird? If so, with what and how much?

2) if for some reason I fall short of what I need for oil, can I use the tallow I have in the freezer or should I just by more bacon fat from the butcher?

Turkey fried in bacon fat...Awesome! I never season my eggs when I cook em in the left over grease, but that could be different.

I don't have a great answer for you, but this video is something you might want to take note of. It looks like bacon oil can potentially be problematic for turkey frying.
