    How to Grill Your Thanksgiving Turkey

    Posted by Heidi N

    Are you still using your oven to cook your Thanksgiving turkey? Try something new this year and grill your turkey!! You’ll find it turns out to be even more tender & juicy than baking it in the oven. Here are the steps to grill up that bird this Thanksgiving:

    • Use a 12 pound turkey (or less)
    • Thaw turkey prior to grilling
    • Use indirect heat – turn on one side of your grill and place the turkey on the other side
    • Pre-heat your grill to 350 degrees
    • Lightly oil the grill’s grate
    • Brush the skin of the turkey with oil or butter to avoid sticking and add seasonings of your choosing
    • Cook until the thigh meat registers 165 degrees (this generally takes 2-3 hours)
    • Rotate the turkey several times; be careful – it’s hot!
    • Avoid opening the lid – conserve the heat
