Yes, but the grandparent post asked how to make a gravy. I was just providing tip on how to avoid some common mistakes. I was assuming the initial poster in this thread could make pbj and heat some Campbells, not the discuss subtitles of rouxs and whether to wet or dry brine the turkey.

My point was that if you are rushing and dump the flour into the hot drippings, it will clump. Rookies may not know this. To avoid the clumps, either make a slurry by mixing the flour and cold water, or sprinkle the flour while whisking.
Of course with your version the drippings have cooled so they won’t have the problem.
