Citrus Stuffed Smoked Turkey on the Grill
Rose Mary Mogan
It is a simple recipe, but you won't believe how much flavor the citrus fruits with the onion & garlic adds to the turkey.
It is moist, tender, flavorful, juicy, & just pull apart goodness throughout.
It cooked to a nice golden brown, & cooked in about 2 1/2 hours, for a 13 pound turkey. The heavy walls of the cast iron charcoal grill helped to hold in the heat, & the DEEP PAN CAUGHT ALL OF THE DRIPPINGS THAT WERE BASTED BACK OVER THE TURKEY AS IT COOKED.
IT IS ONE OF THE BEST TURKEYS YOU CAN MAKE.
