Grilled turkey fused with citrus and herbs is a tender, juicy holiday treat! Perfect Thanksgiving dinner!

Ingredients

10- to 12-pound turkey, thawed if frozen
Salt and pepper, if desired
1
large onion, cut into eighths
2
small lemons, cut into fourths
Vegetable oil
2
tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
1/2
teaspoon ground thyme

Directions

  • 1 If using charcoal grill, place drip pan directly under grilling area, and arrange coals around edge of firebox. Heat coals or gas grill for indirect heat.
  • 2 Rub cavity of turkey with salt and pepper; place onion and lemons in cavity. Brush oil over turkey. Insert barbecue meat thermometer so tip is in the thickest part of inside thigh muscle and does not touch bone.
  • 3 Mix butter and thyme; brush over turkey. Cover and grill turkey, breast side up, over drip pan or over unheated side of gas grill and 5 to 6 inches from medium heat 2 hours 30 minutes to 3 hours 30 minutes or until thermometer reads 165° and drumsticks move easily when lifted or twisted. If using charcoal grill, add about 15 briquettes every hour. Let turkey stand 15 minutes. Remove onion and lemons before carving.
Tips  

A whole turkey keeps frozen up to 1 year. Purchase when on sale and save for a special-occasion barbecue.

Whole turkey grilled as in this recipe will appear slightly pink when done; be sure to grill it until the internal temperature reaches180°.
