How to Grill Your Thanksgiving Turkey

How to GRILL Your
Thanksgiving Turkey


  1. Thaw a 12-pound (or less) turkey prior to grilling and
    remove giblets.
  2. Rinse and pat the turkey dry. Brush the skin of the turkey
    with oil or butter to avoid sticking and add seasonings of
    your choosing.
  3. Preheat your grill to 350 degrees and lightly
    oil the grill’s grate.
  4. Using indirect heat (turn on one side of your grill and place
    the turkey on the other side), cook the turkey, rotating
    several times. Try to keep the lid closed to conserve heat.
  5. The turkey is done when thigh meat registers 165 degrees
    (this usually takes 2 to 3 hours).
  6. Let your turkey sit for 15 minutes before carving.

How to Deep-Fry Your Thanksgiving Turkey

How to Deep-Fry Your
Thanksgiving Turkey

What you’ll need:

  • Thawed, room-temperature turkey (12 pounds or less)
  • 3 to 5 gallons of peanut oil
  • Your favorite seasonings
  • Temperature gauge


  1. Completely thaw a 12-pound (or less) turkey overnight.
    Make sure it’s at room temperature before you begin.
  2. Remove giblets. Rinse and thoroughly pat room-temperature
    turkey dry with paper towels.
  3. Brush the skin of the turkey with oil or butter to avoid sticking
    and add seasonings of your choosing.
  4. Set up your fryer on a flat surface outside, away from your house
    and any overhangs. Bring out a jacket (as it will be chilly) and
    some longer gloves/oven mitts for handling the oil. For extra
    safety, keep a fire extinguisher on hand.
  5. Carefully heat the peanut oil in your propane-powered deep fryer
    to 350 degrees. Make sure the pot is completely dry before
    adding oil. A good rule of thumb is to fill 3/4 with oil so you have
    enough room to submerge your turkey, plus a little extra.
  1. Turn off the burner while you place turkey in drain
    basket with the neck in first. Slowly lower the turkey into
    the fryer, until entirely submerged. Be careful of
    splashing, and use gloves/oven mitts. When in place, turn
    the burner back on.
  2. Fry your turkey for 3 minutes per pound, plus an
    additional 5 minutes for the overall bird. Make sure to
    monitor the heat, as it can fluctuate. Lower heat if oil
    begins to smoke. Never leave the hot oil unattended
    during the process.
  3. Carefully remove the basket from oil and drain the turkey
    on paper towels. Let sit for 20 minutes before carving.
  4. Turn off your flame, and let the oil cool completely. Keep
    oil away from people and pets until it’s completely cooled.
