ever popular microwave. Here we offer you different methods that can be used for cooking turkey.

Covered Charcoal Grill
First, you must have well prepared and clean equipment for this and good quality charcoal. Put up a pyramid of charcoal on one side.
Set fire to the charcoal until it gets red hot. Place a thermometer on the food rack to check the temperature of the grill. This will give the
cook an exact reading of the meat's temperature when cooking.
In the center of the grill where the turkey will be placed, carefully arrange the charcoal around the edge evenly. Place the grill rack and
set the prepared turkey on it. The turkey's breast should be side-up. Simply maintain its temperature. Then cover the grill. If you want,
you can add seasonings for the turkey to have flavor as it is cooking. Do not ever use softwood like cedar and pine because it gives the
food a different taste and makes the turkey's skin turn black.

Covered gas Grill
The gas grill can be provided by using either propane tanks or natural gas. If your gas grill has only one burner, a water pan should be
placed under the grate to create indirect heat. If you have two or three burners, make sure the turkey is placed away from the flame.
This is done by turning off one burner and placing the turkey in that area.
