Barbecuing Turkey

To help you achieve great barbecued turkey, following are some tips to use as guidelines:

To prevent sticking, rub your barbecue grill lightly with oil or use a non-stick vegetable spray while the grill is cold…

Never pierce the turkey part with a fork.  Instead, turn it with a spatula or tongs to keep juices in…

Brush the glaze only during the last 15 – 20 minutes of cooking time to prevent burning…

When barbequing, always remember to use a good set of long oven mitts and utensils made especially for barbequing…

Cool weather and windy or damp conditions are factors, which may lengthen the cooking times of the turkey…

When barbecuing a whole turkey, do not stuff, place turkey in pan or grill and close lid (opening lid will increase cooking times).  Use medium heat on your barbeque.

Your (unstuffed) turkey is cooked when the thermometer reaches 170°F or 77°C.
