1(12 lb.)turkey (thaw 2 days ahead if frozen),

2bottles (16 oz.)Texas Barbeque Sauce,


1Remove turkey neck and giblets package from turkey cavity and set aside for other use. Rinse turkey and pat dry.

2Prepare an outdoor grill or smoker for indirect medium-high heat. Use your fingers to carefully loosen turkey skin, from the cavity to the neck and from the thighs and drums. Spread barbecue sauce under skin and all over turkey.

3Place turkey breast side up on a metal rack in a large roasting pan. Arrange pan on prepared grill. Grill 2 to 3 hours, about 11 to 13 minutes per pound, until turkey registers an internal temperature of 180°F in the thigh and 165°F in the breast. Remove from grill and let stand 15 to 30 minutes before carving.
