  1. Prepare barbecue grill with rectangular metal or foil drip pan. Bank the charcoal on either side of drip pan for indirect cooking.

  2. Insert meat thermometer into center of thickest part of turnkey breast, not touching bone.

     

    Make sure the meat thermometer does not touch the bone when inserted.

  3. Place turkey, bone-side down, on roast rack or directly on preheated grid, directly over drip pan.

  4. Grill turkey, on covered grill, over medium coals 55 minutes, adding 4 to 9 briquets to both sides of the fire after 45 minutes to maintain medium coals.

  5. If using a basting sauce, brush turkey with sauce and continue to grill, covered, 10 minutes. Brush with remaining mixture; continue to grill, covered, about 10 minutes or until thermometer registers 170 degrees Fahrenheit.

  6. Transfer turkey to carving board; tent with foil. Let stand 10 minutes before carving.
