Grill, meet turkey. In an unexpected flavor twist, traditional turkey breast hits the grates for a moist, smoky main dish. Cooked with wood chips and seasoned with McCormick thyme, sage, garlic powder and paprika, it’s a guaranteed holiday hit – for many celebrations to come.
Soak wood chips in enough water to cover for about 30 minutes. Drain. Place about 1 cup of wood chips in center of each of 2 sheets of aluminum foil. Fold tightly to make 2 packets. Poke several holes with fork on both sides of packets to allow smoke to escape. Set aside.
Prepare grill for indirect medium heat (350°F to 375°F). Preheat grill by turning all burners to medium.
Mix butter, garlic, paprika, thyme, sage and salt in small bowl until well blended. Rub 1/2 of the mixture under skin of turkey. Rub remaining mixture over entire surface of turkey.
Turn off burner(s) on one side of grill. Place foil packets directly on grill rack over lit burner.
Place turkey, breast side up, directly on unlit side of grill. Close lid. Grill about 1 to 1 1/2 hours or until cooked through (internal temperature reaches 165°F). Remove pan from grill. Let stand 20 minutes. Transfer turkey to platter or carving board to slice,
Test Kitchen Tip: To keep the whole turkey breast upright while cooking on the grill, place an orange half underneath each side of the turkey breast.
