Turkey Day!!

Anyone out there planning to grill up some turkey day on Thursday?

I looked around at some recipes and it seems to me that you cook a turkey on the grill pretty much the same way you cook a turkey in the oven. The only difference is that you’ll get some really amazing flavor from using the grill.

Here are the basic tips for turkey grilling:

1) Use a medium-high heat setting on your grill. The heat definitely needs to be indirect so MAKE SURE the heat tents or briquettes that cover your burners are in good shape!!

2) Place an aluminum pan on top of the briquettes or heat tents in your grill and directly under your bird. This pan will catch the juices and evaporate them back for more deliciousness.

3) Season the bird with salt, pepper and oil, or anything else you normally use and tie the legs as normal. (Cook your stuffing in the house)

4) Place the bird in the grill breast side up.

5) Grill for 11 to 13 minutes per pound (instant read thermometer should say 180 degrees F and the juices will run clear).

6) Let it stand for 15 minutes before you carve it and serve it to all those amazed faces.

Yup, you’re the bomb!!!

Happy Thanksgiving Y’all.

This turkey was smoked on a Big Green Egg at my very own house.
