To achieve optimum heat with both gas and charcoal grills, use the grill cover. Use of the cover will reduce the amount of fuel required and prevent flare-ups. Use tongs and spatulas to turn the foods. Do not pierce the poultry with sharp forks or knives, as this will cause the natural juices to escape. When grilling a whole bird, check the turkey when it is about two-thirds done. Cut the bondage straps holding the legs together, allowing the heat to reach all portions of the bird. Don’t apply sauce until 10-15 minutes into cooking the bird. The sugar will caramelize and burn the surface if applied too early. Grilling time depends on many factors: the size and shape of the turkey, the distance from the heat, temperature of the coals and the outside air temperature. Allow more time on cold or windy days and at high altitudes. Allow less time in very hot weather. Poultry cooked on a grill often browns very fast. Always use a food thermometer to ensure the turkey has reached a safe internal temperature. A turkey needs to reach an internal temperature of 165F in the thigh meat before it can be considered done. To achieve this, the bird must be cooked at a temperature greater than 165F for long enough to cook it through. Don’t forget to take the thermometer out when you shut the lid it will melt the glass. Last but not least remove the turkey from grill if possible have someone help you because you sure don’t want to drop this baby.
