To a small sauce pan add giblets, water, onion powder, garlic powder and celery salt. Bring to a boil over med-high heat then reduce heat to medium-low, cover pan and simmer for 20 minutes.
Remove giblets from pan reserving liquid. Allow giblets to cool then chop finely.
Heat a 12" Dutch oven using 18-20 briquettes bottom. Add butter and pinenuts. Saute until pinenuts start taking on a light color.
Add onions, celery, mushrooms, and garlic. Continue to saute until vegetables are tender. Remove vegetables from Dutch oven and allow to cool slightly.
In a large bowl combine remaining ingredients, the cooked vegetables and the reserved giblet liquid. Mix together until bread cubes have absorbed all the liquid. Spoon stuffing mixture into the Dutch oven and spread evenly.
