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
In deciding on a meal plan, it is essential to also make sure you cut down your ingestion of refined carbohydrate, fat and salt.
Some lower carb diet pointers:
* Fiber is important:
Decreasing the carbs in your diet often results in reduction in fiber also. Look out for reduced carbohydrate recipes that are fiber-rich to restore the balance.
* Use low carb chocolate for cookies and muffins.
Once you have converted your favorite chocolate chip cookie or muffins recipe using soya flour, you really shouldn't mix in those high carbohydrate 'real' chocolate. Chop up a low carb chocolate bar into tiny pieces and use that as an alternative.
