Tested till perfect Barbecue-Roasted Turkey

Barbecue-Roasted Turkey

This unstuffed barbecued bird has a hint of smoky flavour that you'll love. It also frees up oven space for accompaniments such as biscuits, scalloped potatoes or apple cobbler. We find that turkeys 14 pounds (6.25 kg) and under are more suitable for roasting on the barbecue than larger ones.
