Fool-Proof Tips and Tricks

Grilling can be intimidating but we’ve got you covered. Follow these simple tips and tricks and you’ll be a grill master in no time.

  • Always use a meat thermometer to ensure your turkey is perfectly cooked and your guests are perfectly happy.
  • Oil up your grill to prevent turkey from sticking and make clean up easier.
  • Remember, season before sauce. Spices need heat to open and compliment the turkey while sauce needs to dry but not burn. Wait until the turkey is cooked before adding your sauce.
  • It’s not a race. The hotter the grill, the more likely you are to burn the exterior of the meat while leaving the inside uncooked. Start with the BBQ on high searing and then finish cooking the turkey on low. Alternately, you can use the indirect heat approach by keeping one side on high and the other side turned off, this way the BBQ will act as an oven.
