Turkey on the Grill

Have you ever cooked a turkey on the grill?! It's a great way to take all that heat out of the kitchen, or free up the oven space for everything else. 

I think this is such a fun way to prepare the Thanksgiving turkey. We always roast ours, but this year we're taking the bird outside to cook on the grill! It still gets all juicy and perfect, but it also comes out with that distinct grilled flavor. 

Even when cooking on the grill, I still brine my turkey to make sure it really stays moist and full of flavor. You can brine your turkey for as long as 2 days, or as short as overnight, so whatever your timeline, you can get that extra flavor infused straight into your bird. 

My oven will be full of Brussels sprouts, stuffing, vegetables, and pies so I'm really looking forward to having all the extra space I can get. 

Look at that crispy golden skin! Doesn't it look perfect?! Bring something new to the Thanksgiving dinner table this year with a turkey on the grill. What are your favorite Thanksgiving side dishes to serve with turkey? Tell me in the comments below!

Turkey on the Grill

Prep Time: 10 mins Cook Time: 180 mins

egg free

nut free

dairy free

gluten free

Ingredients

  • 18 pound turkey
  • oil

Preparation

1. Remove turkey from brining liquid, if applicable, blot with towels and allow to air dry for 30 minutes. Then coat with oil. If you didn't brine your turkey, then season it with salt and pepper after coating in oil. (I highly recommend brining!)

2. Heat the grill to 350F degrees. If your grill has 3 burners, turn on the 2 outside burners, leaving the middle off. If your grill has 2 burners, turn on only one. Your goal is to get the grill heated to 350F, but for the turkey to sit in indirect heat. 

3. Place the turkey on a baking sheet lined with a cooling rack. Place the baking sheet on the section of the grill that is turned off so the turkey is not sitting over direct heat. 

4.Cook the turkey for 90 minutes, rotate the pan, and cook an additional 90 minutes, until the turkey is 160F degrees when checked using a meat thermometer and the skin is golden brown. 

5. Remove from the grill and allow to rest for 30 minutes. Serve with gravy and cranberry sauce.

    Behold I was in a very bad shape when I lost my boyfriend. We were supposed to get married and everything got cancelled which was my fault. He broke up with me because he was a good guy who I treated wrong and didn’t appreciate.
    Subsequently I became so depressed and ashamed of myself, I realized he was my life coach and all, I cannot live without him. I searched and found Dr. Wakina just like others did, “Doctor please help me out, bring him back to me since he already got a new girlfriend. Not only do I have a broken heart but I have a broken soul too. I don’t know if he wants to show off or take a revenge from me. Make me everything he desires.” The result was presented to me as asked. The man I carelessly lost was brought back. I’m sharing this post to the public because Dr.Wakina via his email……. [email protected] wiped my secret tears and made us whole again. I’m now filled with tears of joy. All my mistakes have been forgiven and forgotten.

      In my humble opinion, I think it’s good idea to get back your ex-lover permanently after break-up through love spell. There is nothing wrong with seeking for help from an experienced and truthful spiritual spell doctor who can read through your broken heart to see the future and amend it if necessary.
      Most people think spells fade away after sometime, some think it’s against their lover’s will or against their religious believe, some think they will be ripped off for their hard-earned money.

      I must say that I have seen couple of successful relationship today through love spell.
      My Cousin (James) has been enjoying a peaceful and prosperous marriage since he got his wife back through love spell 4 years ago. On the other hand, my life has changed positively ever since Dr. Wakina via [email protected] cast a spell that helped me to reconcile with my husband.

      So, I will advise anyone looking to get his or her lover back to search thoroughly and contact a genuine spiritual spell doctor who can help. It won’t take days or weeks depending on the nature of your case for a genuine spell doctor to bring back your lover. Another benefit is that your lover will appreciate the effort you put in through love spell.
      That’s my humble opinion about love spell.

      The occurrences in my marriage wasn’t clear, I invested emotionally and I don’t see the positive impacts. I prayed for a husband that could remind me of the good he sees in me, a husband that can make me laugh and also boost my mood.
      The introduction of spell to my hunt saved my marriage. Dr. Wakina looked at the happenings from a different angle before solving the puzzle. He totally handled the event like the master he is. It was emotional for me seeing us reach beyond the invisible boundaries in our marriage.
      My husband is in support of this story, so I’m not compromising my integrity because the spell toss on us was a goodwill spell.
      “Share your story to liberate a relationship” was the word said to me by Dr. Wakina after he successfully completed a unity spell that brought us back after 9 months and 4 days. He found the enduring solution to my negative marital events via his email [email protected] I bless the day I read the story that lead me to Dr. Wakina.

    Are you able to use a typical turkey roasting pan instead of a cookie sheet and cooling rack?

    Hi everyone!
    My Ex and I broke up 1 year and 2 months ago and i was six months pregnant. We both love each other and it was a shock to me and it really broke my heart. I tried to call him and both of his lines were disconnected. I tried to reach him on social networks but he deleted me off of them. I tried to reach his parents and they told me that their son said that he does not love me and does not want to see me and they do not know what is wrong. I cried and cried everyday because I loved him very much. Until I gave birth and the baby was one year old, I could not get my love back. Again, I was confused. I do not know what to do and I also lost my job and I have no money to take care of the baby. I was miserable in life so I cried to my sister and told her my problem and said that she knew of one powerful spell caster that helped her when she could not get pregnant. I contacted him by email and he said he will help me and told me that a woman cast a spell upon my man and said he will help me break the spell so my man will come back to me and be mine forever. It was a great surprise to me that everything that he said came to pass. My man came back to me immediately, saying that I should forgive him. I am sending a very big thank you to this powerful and real spell caster. I pray for him to live long and do more of his wonderful work. If you have any kind of problem disturbing you in life, you have to contact this powerful spell caster! He can help you. He will not disappoint you, I give you 100% guarantee that he will help you, Here’s his contact: Email him at: [email protected]

    My husband and I have been married for over 10 years. We met when I was 18 and he was 21. We’ve been through a lot emotionally together. There were several HUGE fights and painful situations in our marriage, but we always seemed to come out stronger on the other side. Out of the blue my husband just sprung the divorce talk on me, I was totally depressed until I found Dr.Todd website online and i ordered for a Love spell. You won’t believe my husband called me at the exact time this spell caster finished his spell work in 24hours. I was totally amazed! He is wonderful and his spells work so fast.
