BBQ Turkey Recipe

Ingredients

1 – 16-20 lb turkey, thawed & washed thoroughly
INJECTION MARINADE
1 c orange juice, no pulp or sunny d
1/4 c soy sauce, dark
1/2 c brown sugar, firmly packed
1 c jack daniels bbq sauce or other favorite bbq sauce
1 Tbsp worcestershire sauce
2 tsp bbq seasoning
1 tsp seasoning salt
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper, or more for hotter taste
1/4 c butter

Directions

1 Prepare BBQ grill with lots of charcoal or wood, your choice. Soak hickory chips in water. Mix all marinade ingredients in deep glass measuring cup or equivilent. Heat in microwave just until butter is melted. Set aside and prepare turkey.
2 Wash turkey inside and outide with cool water. With a very sharp serrated blade knife or as I use, a hack saw I use just for my turkeys…cut alongside beast bone all the way through. Then cut down both sides of backbone and cut it completely out. I cut the backbone in half and put it in a pot of cold water with neck to simmer for stock to make the gravy and dressing.
3 Pat turkey halves dry and lay each half on a double layer of heavy duty foil big enough to wrap completely around turkey half and securely close after injecting. Using an injector syringe, fill and inject turkey all over about every inch, front and back, keeping marinade stirred as you go. Repeat with other turkey half.
4 Season outside of turkey with more BBQ seasoning, seasoning salt, pepper & cayenne. Wrap the foil around turkey to cover completely and fold seams to secure. Spread coals so turkey cooks over indirect heat, add soaked hickory chips a little at a time during cooking process. Place turkey halves on grill and poke holes all over the foil to let the smoke seep in. Turn over every 20 minutes for 1 hour and 30-50 minutes.(depending on size of turkey) pull foil back so turkey will brown the last 30 minutes. Test with an instant read thermometer to read 160-165 degrees. Remove from grill and cover with foil again to rest for 15 minutes. Carve and enjoy.

BBQ Turkey Recipe

Ingredients

  • 2 cups butter, divided
  • 1 (15 pound) whole turkey, neck and giblets removed
  • 1/4 cup chicken soup base
  • 3 sweet onions, peeled and cut into wedges
  • 5 apples, cored and cut into wedges
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic, or to taste
  • 1 (750 milliliter) bottle dry white wine

Directions

  1. Preheat a gas grill for low heat.
  2. Rub some of the butter all over the turkey, inside and out, then rub all over with chicken base. Cut remaining butter into cubes and toss with onions, apples, and garlic in a large bowl. Stuff the bird with this mixture and place in a disposable aluminum roasting pan. Fold the turkey skin around the neck area to cover the hole and then turn the turkey over and pour wine into the opening at the other end until the turkey is full or the bottle is empty. Set the turkey breast side up.
  3. Place the roasting pan on the grill and cover loosely with aluminum foil. If you have a pop up timer or heat safe meat thermometer, insert it into the turkey breast. Close the lid.
  4. Roast until the temperature in the breast reads 170 degrees F (75 degrees C) and the temperature in the thickest part of the thigh reads 180 degrees C (80 degrees C), about 4 hours depending on the temperature of your grill. When the temperature is getting close, remove the aluminum foil covering the turkey and allow it to brown during the final minutes of cooking. If it starts to brown too much, just cover it back up. Allow the turkey to rest for at least 20 minutes before carving.
