Grilled Turkey

Grilled TurkeyThis is what I served for the 4th of July.

And yes, I am actually that far behind on some of my posts.   There is a reason my blog title calls me Harried. (not to be confused with harry….which I tend to object to….)

Anyway, you know I mentioned that 25 pound turkey in my freezer?  This was it’s smaller sidekick.    Weighing in at 14 pounds, it was the perfect size for the grill.

Grilled TurkeyI simply cut the turkey up like a chicken.  Who knew, right?  Can I tell you that it’s a good thing we live in Florida because I may be making the Thanksgiving bird this way, too!  Actually, as much as I’d like to, there would be a full on mutiny if I did that, but I can think about it!!  This bird was so moist and delicious.   Paired with the smokey mustard potato salad I made, I think the meal was one of my better summer combos.   (Should I tell you that I just ordered 10 bottles of Saucy Mama’s Smokey Garlic Mustard?  I had a coupon code.  And free shipping.  Does that make me weird?)

I used my copycat KFC 11 herbs and spices mix as the rub.  That stuff is not just for fried chicken.
