My review is for the cooking method presented in this recipe. I used a brined 6lb turkey breast (#78515) and this grilling process worked perfectly although I didn't find it necessary to use the toothpicks. The 45 minute cooking time was right on. Delicious, fork-tender and juicy.

This was very tasty and moist! Thanks for the tip about splitting the turkey. It worked great! We went real liberal on the cajun spices and ended marinating it for the full 24 hours. The combination of the spices and sauce sounds basic, I know, but the flavor was yummy! thanks for a siimple, great techniuqe and recipe!
