Grilled Turkey

Rated as 4.83 out of 5 Stars

"Great grilled turkey! My grill is an old one that has a hinged top. I open all of the vents and prop the lid open about 2 to 3 inches with a stick...man does it get hot! Do not spill the juices and wine on the coals, as they are extremely flammable."

Love it! This is the kind of recipe you want when your cooking for a large group. You can bake one Turkey while the other is out on the grill. Yum-O!
