Grilled Turkey

A perfect way to switch up traditionally roasting your turkey without going too unconventional is grilling it! Grilling your turkey adds flavor and an irresistible taste while freeing up your oven space for your yummy side dishes saving you more time. What’s not to love about less stress and more food?

Wood-Smoked Turkey

While smoking a turkey is a bit of a longer process than roasting or grilling it, the end result is a tasty combination of sweet and smoky flavors while keeping the meat juicy. Like grilling your turkey, smoking it also frees up your oven for other dishes. If you’re willing to spend a little extra time for that nice crispiness and unique flavor, try smoking your turkey!
