Wood Pellet Recommendation
Rinse the turkey inside and outside with cold water and dry the turkey with a paper towel. Prepare and brine as directed in your Turkey Prep Kit instructions.
Once brining is complete, heat your Pit Boss Grill to 275 degrees.
Coat the turkey skin with olive oil, and make sure to get underneath the bird – Rub as directed.
Cut the apples, pears, and citrus into quarters and place inside the turkey cavity.
Use a shallow pan or drip tray and place the turkey onto the pan. The tray will catch the drippings for making gravy once the turkey is finished.
Next place the turkey onto your preheated grill. Place the temperature probe in the thickest portion of the breast, being careful to keep the probe away from any bones.
Cook time at 275 is 20 minutes per pound, or when the temperature internally reaches 165 degrees.
Follow the directions in the Prep Kit for preparing your stuffing, using the seasoning packet provided.
At 165, remove the turkey from the grill and allow to rest for 20 minutes before slicing.
For a more savory stuffing, add 1 lb of cooked sausage to the stuffing mix before baking.
