Barbecued Turkey With Herbs Recipe
1 stephen ceideburg
9 lb to 13 lb turkey
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup chopped parsley
2 tbsp chopped fresh sage, or:
2 tsp dried sage, crushed
2 tbsp chopped fresh rosemary, or:
2 tsp dried rosemary, crushed
1 tbsp chopped fresh thyme, or:
1 tsp dried thyme, crushed
1 cracked black pepper
Use indirect heat, as explained in the recipe to cook a whole turkey
or turkey breast. Allow 1 3/4 to 3 1/4 hours' cook- ing time,
depending on the size of your turkey and heat of the coals.
Prepare coals and grill.
Remove neck and giblets from turkey. Rinse turkey under cold water;
drain and pat dry with paper towels.
Combine oil, herbs and seasonings in a small bowl. Generously brush on
cavities and outer surface of turkey, reserv- ing some mixture to use
as a baste.
Pull turkey skin over the neck; secure with a skewer. Tuck wings
under back and tie legs together with kitchen twine.
Arrange medium-hot briquettes on two sides of a large metal or foil
drip pan. Fill the pan halfway with hot tap water.
Place turkey, breast side up, on grill, directly above the drip pan.
Cover grill and cook turkey 11 to 15 minutes per pound, or until an
instant-read meat thermometer registers 180 degrees F, basting
occasionally with reserved herb mixture.
Add a few briquettes to both sides of the fire every hour or as
necessary to maintain a constant temperature.
Garnish with additional fresh herbs, if desired.

Food Tips of the Week
Diet hints and tips
In deciding on a diet, it is essential to attempt to lower your consumption of fat, salt and refined carbohydrates.
Some lower carbohydrate diet guidlines:
* Use splenda instead of sugar.
Recipes that call for sugar can be changed to make use of splenda instead. It doesn't weigh the same so you will have to experiment a little and it might not be perfect for everything, but it does bake up nice in most cases.
* Use low carbohydrate chocolate bars for chocolate muffins.
If you have taken the time to convert your best loved chocolate chip cookie or chocolate muffins recipe using soya flour, you donít want to add in those high carb chocolate chips. Break up a low carb chocolate bar into tiny chunks and use that in its place.
