      Barb, this is a wonderful recipe! I used a 6 1/2 lb. turkey breast with a pop-up timer. Your directions were so simple to follow! The results were fabulous, moist and very flavorful! Thanks for sharing this recipe with us, Barb!

      Updated review: I've made this recipe many times but today was the first time I tried it on the grill and it was superb. I found a really great sale on turkey breasts but it was way too hot to heat up my kitchen with a roast. I couldn't find my rack (DH probably has it in the garage somewhere) so I set the turkey breast on a piece of foil and placed it right on the grill. I used indirect heat, had a 5.25 lb. bird and it took exactly 1 1/2 hours to get a perfect turkey breast. Barb, thanks again for this terrific recipe...I now have both a winter and summer method! :)
