Grilled Turkey Breast

I always serve a baked turkey breast at Thanksgiving. A few weeks ago, one of our local grocery stores had them on sale, and I picked one up. I spoke to my husband about smoking it on our grill, and he decided to give it a try.

It was delicious! I was able to freeze the leftovers for other meals. Menu options include Turkey and Sausage Gumbo and also Pioneer Woman’s Turkey Tetrazzini. Yum!

Grilled Turkey Breast


1 medium to large turkey breast

your choice of seasoning


Pat turkey breast dry with paper towels. Place on a large platter and season all sides generously. Seasoning options can be whatever you wish, as simple as salt and pepper, your favorite dry rub or seasoning blend.

Place the turkey breast on your grill. Cook over indirect heat (hot coals on opposite side of the grill from meat) and with grill top closed. Turn breast every half hour.

Remove from grill when internal temperature reaches 170 degrees. Bring inside and tent for 15-20 minutes.

Slice turkey and serve.
