Thanskgiving Day Menu

Grilled Turkey --If you like crispy, golden brown skin, tender, juicy meat, and mouth watering flavor, try grilling your turkey this year. It's really quite easy, easier than oven baking! Plus it frees up your oven for more important things like pies.

Preheat your gas grill on Medium. Spray a large foil roasting pan with cooking spray. Clean your turkey inside and out and place breast up in the prepared pan. Sprinkle inside and out with generous amounts of sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Place pan on grill over indirect heat (turn off center burner if you can) and close the grill. Turkey takes about 15 minutes per pound (about the same as the oven) or maybe a smidge faster. Check on it occasionally and turn the heat down if you need to.

If your grill is too hot, the drippings will burn off; if you want drippings for gravy, keep an eye on your heat.
