Outdoor cooking of turkey has become a popular cooking method. During grilling, the turkey cooks by indirect heat in an outdoor covered gas or charcoal grill. A pan of water is placed beneath the grilling surface to catch the dripping turkey juices. Cooking is done by hot, smoky, steamy air. Turkey breasts, drumsticks, wings and whole turkeys are all suited for grilling.

Grilled Roast Turkey Breast Recipe
I created a flavorful compound butter using citrus and fresh herbs, half of which is used to rub between the skin and the meat, and the other half is melted and basted on to the skin of the turkey to create a flavorful, crisp, golden brown skin, which in my humble opinion is the best part of the turkey anyway. This recipe is prepared on a charcoal grill but you can easily adapt this for a gas grill or even a Weber smoker. Start by creating a medium-hot fire about degrees with an indirect cooking zone. I like to use the Weber char-baskets to bank the charcoal to each side of the grill, and a large disposable drip pan in the middle.
