    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 8 3/4 lbs turkey
    • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
    • 1 teaspoon thyme
    • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne
    • 1 teaspoon italian seasoning (Mrs Dash )
    • 1/2 teaspoon clove
    • 1/2 teaspoon allspice
    • butter-flavored cooking spray, as needed
    • 1 cup mesquite wood chips, soaked in water and drained

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat grill on high. Turn down to maintain (medium) 350 degrees.
    2. 2
      Place smoker box of wet mesquite chips on grill.
    3. 3
      Remove neck and giblets from cavity, rinse turkey, and pat dry.
    4. 4
      Mix spices in a small bowl, set aside 1 TBSP of mixture, and put some of the mixture in the cavity and some under the skin.
    5. 5
      Spray turkey with butter spray and pat reserved spice mixture on the skin of the turkey.
    6. 6
      Place turkey breast side down, turning back wing tips, on the grill over a dip pan.
    7. 7
      Cook turkey for 11 to 13 minutes per pound (internal temperature 180 degrees in thigh and 170 degrees in breast.
    8. 8
      Note: At halfway point, turn turkey if needed for even cooking. 10- 18 pound turkey takes 2 to 3 hours. We turned our turkey at 1 1/2 hours. To reach internal temperature of 170 in breast we cooked it for 1 1/2 more.
    9. 9
