Grilled turkey doesn’t have to be complicated. This basic grilled turkey recipe will save you oven space and will result in a juicy bird with perfectly crispy skin.

  • Yields: 8 servings


1 turkey

olive oil

poultry rub


1Heat the grill to 400 degrees with indirect heat.

2Remove the innards and neck bone from the turkey. Rinse and pat dry. Coat the turkey with olive oil and poultry rub.

3Place the turkey on the indirect heat side of the grill, breast side down for 30 minutes.

4Flip. Reduce the temperature to 350 degrees (by turning the gas burner dial down or adjusting the vents on a charcoal grill). Continue cooking until the thigh meat reaches 165 degrees.


Cook time varies, depending on the size of the bird. A 10-pound bird will cook in about 2 to 2 ½ hours.

When using a kettle grill, like the Char-Broil Kettleman, place the coals in a circle around the outer edges. Then, place the turkey in the middle for indirect heat.

I love to cook outdoors. Give me a smoker, a grill or even a campfire, and I'll serve you up a meal you won't forget.
