The seasoning was excellent! The nomenclature is a bit confusing, however. It should be "Herb-Rubbed Charcoal-Roasted Turkey" because first of all, the turkey is not smoked, which takes several hours over a slow fire; and secondly, primarily herbs - not spices - are used. I know. I know. I'm picky. But once a writer/editor, always a writer/editor!!

I think I found the go-to recipe for Thanksgiving now! This recipe doesn't require basting which is great. I put a 15 lb. marinated turkey onto a gas grill and grilled it at 375 degrees for 2 1/2 hours. The bird turned out fantastic! All I had to do was to maintain the temperature of the grill during cooking. Flavorwise, I mixed 2 tablespoons smoked paprika with all the spices and herbs stated in this recipe. That's the only change I made. Great recipe! Thanks for posting!

This was nicely seasoned, moist and delicious. I think that the cook time may refer to an electric smoker. We have a charcoal smoker which took considerably longer to cook the turkey. We actually had cooked it on Sunday, sliced it and froze it until dinner today. I defrosted in the refrigerator, covered it with foil and warmed it while the rest of Thanksgiving dinner cooked. It was a huge hit!
