Key Ingredients

Turkey Butter Salt & Pepper Brine, optional

Setup the Grill: Preheat the grill to 375-400℉ and set it up for indirect cooking. To capture the turkey juices as it cooks, position a drip pan or a disposable aluminum pan under the grates where the turkey will sit. Add water to the pan periodically to maintain a moist environment in the grill and to keep the drippings from burning away because you’ll need them if you want to make gravy.

- STEP 1 -

Prepare the Turkey: Pat the turkey dry with paper towels, then rub it with half the butter, including the cavity. Sprinkle the turkey generously with salt and pepper, both on the skin and under the skin.

- STEP 2 -

Grill the Turkey: Place the turkey breast, skin side up, on the grill grates directly over the drip pan. To ensure even cooking, turn and bast the breast with the remaining butter occasionally.

- STEP 3 -

Rest the Turkey: Remove it from the grill and tent with foil once the turkey is done. Allow it to rest for about 10-15 minutes. This resting period helps the juices redistribute throughout the meat, ensuring a moist and tender turkey. Remove each breast from the breast bone and slice it into thick, diagonal slice
