“Fire up the grill this Thanksgiving and try turkey in a new way! We love grilling for the holidays because it brings a whole new flavor profile to our Thanksgiving turkey, and our friends and family love to flock around the grill as we cook. Whether you’re preparing a whole bird for a feast or a turkey breast for a smaller gathering, the versatility of turkey lends itself to the smoke and sizzle of cooking on the grill – just add your favorite brines, glazes or rubs. Plus, taking your Thanksgiving turkey to the grill frees up oven space for your sides (hello, green bean casserole!).” – National Turkey Federation
