How to Make Turkey Loco

Step-by-Step

  • 1Remove turkey neck and giblets; discard large lumps of fat. With poultry shears or a knife, split turkey lengthwise along one side of backbone.
  • 2Pull turkey open; place, skin side up, on a flat surface and press firmly, cracking breastbone slightly, until bird lies reasonably flat. Rinse and pat dry. (At this point, you may cover and refrigerate until next day).
  • 3Before cooking, squeeze 1 to 2 lime halves and rub over turkey; sprinkle with oregano, then lightly sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • 4Barbecue turkey by indirect heat placing turkey, skin side up, on a lightly greased grill directly above drip pan.
  • 5Cover barbecue and adjust dampers as necessary to maintain an even heat.
  • 6Cook turkey until a meat thermometer inserted in thickest part of thigh (not touching the bone),registers 185ºF or until meat near thighbone is no longer pink; cut to test (1 1/-2 hours).
  • 7Every 30 minutes, squeeze 1 to 2 lime halves and rub over turkey.
  • 8Transfer turkey to platter.
  • 9To carve, cut off wings and slice breast. Cut off legs and slice meat from thighs.
