Trisha Yearwood's turkey cooking method?

I'm really skeptical about this, but Trisha featured this method on her show today and I'm curious as to whether any of you have done this. she said she puts a 12 lb. turkey in a roasting pan, adds about 2 cups of boiling water into the bottom of the pan ( I think the turkey was on a small rack). she preheats the oven to 500, cooks the bird for one hour at that temp then turns the oven off and leaves it overnight. the turkey on her show today was browned and looked well cooked, moist and tender. but I'm leery of leaving a turkey in the oven all night with the oven turned off. could the temp in the oven really stay at a safe temp to cook the turkey? I'm sure Trisha wouldn't have this on her show if it didn't work for her, but I don't know....

as the Countess Rostov liked to remark: if patience wasn't so easily tested, then it would hardly be a virtue....
