Simple recipes for BBQ turkey using a Weber grill include brined and barbecued turkey with pan gravy, greatest grilled turkey and ultimate smoked turkey. The recipes instruct how to cook a 12-pound bird.
The recipe for brined and barbecue turkey with pan gravy requires up to 24 hours of preparation to brine the turkey, according to Weber. The brine consists of 3 quarts of cold water, apple juice, kosher salt, dried rosemary, dried thyme, dried sage and ground black pepper. The turkey marinates in a cooler with the brine before grilling. Coals are arranged in a crescent with a pan of warm water under the grill to regulate temperature. The turkey must be cooked on an indirect heat to ensure the whole bird is cooked thoroughly.
The greatest grilled turkey recipe uses a pan placed under the turkey with a 1/2 cup of water to make gravy, says All Recipes. The turkey is rubbed with Italian seasoning, salt, pepper and olive oil before grilling.
The ultimate smoked turkey is coated in a wet rub recipe called Simon and Garfunkel, notes Amazing Ribs. The gravy uses apple juice, onions, carrots, celery, dried sage leaves, dried thyme leaves and bay leaves along with the turkey drippings.
