Grilled Turkey

The Raisinhaters, they do not mess around on Thanksgiving. I went home to New Jersey for a four day festival of food and wine. We had turkey and short ribs and mini cheeseburgers and deep fried everything. Biscuits with sausage gravy and chocolate chip pancakes. I ate more in four days than I have in the past month.

It's too much to tell at once, especially today as I try to recuperate. So for now, I’ll just show you the turkey…



This year we grilled our turkey and it was fantastic – smoky flavored and tender. It was about a 13 pound turkey – we grilled it for 2 hours or so, replenishing the charcoal halfway through. Just put a drip pan (disposable!) in the grill to catch the fat, and arrange the charcoal in a ring around the outside of the drip pan. Here it is right before we ate it!

Whoa, this is telling me something. This is the 2nd grilled turkey I've seen in 5 minutes. Looks great. I can practically smell the bird through my laptop-this thing is amazing ! :)
