    Heat gas grill to 250°F. Soak wood chips as directed on package; drain. Place wood chips on sheet of heavy-duty foil; fold up all ends to enclose chips. Poke holes in foil with knife; place on grill. Heat about 30 minutes or until chips are smoking slightly. Turn off one side of grill (as for indirect heat).

    Meanwhile, pat turkey with paper towel. Brush with oil; sprinkle with barbecue seasoning. Place wood chips and turkey on nonheated side of grill. Smoke 3 to 3 1/2 hours, turning 3 to 4 times, until juice of turkey is clear when thickest part is cut to bone (165°F).
