A grilled/smoked turkey is juicer and has a far better flavor than an oven-roasted turkey. The turkey will be more tender and juicy than you thought possible. The recommended size for BBQ is 12-14 pounds. The turkey must fit under the lid with about 1-inch space between top of turkey and lid.

Prepare the turkey. Most recipes on bbq'd turkey start out giving instructions for brining. Store bought turkeys such as Butterball are brined. After turkey is thawed, remove giblets and nick from the body. Rinse turkey in fresh water and pat dry with paper towels. Turn the wings back and return legs to tucked position if untucked. DO NOT STUFF.
