Barbequed Bone-In Turkey Breast is one of my favorite things to make ...

Something like this ... though I can't afford this top-shelf of product, just including this cause it's a good pic of what I'm talking about.

It's so easy, so good.

Unpackage, rinse, put in a deep aluminum pan, and use some balled foil to hold it upright. Brush with olive oil and sprinkle with fresh chopped herbs (I love Thyme and/or Rosemary), or shove some sprigs under the skin.

What I do is put it on the Weber Kettle, indirect method with each basket about 2/3 full, plop the bird in the middle, and cook to 160F internal. Takes about 1.25-1.75 hours. I have a temp gauge that transmits to my phone and rings me when it hits 160F. That ... is an awesome tool, btw.

Oh, also, toss some wood chips in the baskets right before you close the top. Apple, Oak, and Mesquite all work great, and give the bird distinctive flavors (I guarantee you I could tell you if a bird was cooked with any of those 3 woods, and which one was used )

Then remove when it hits the temp, put foil over, and a towel, and let it sit for about 10 mins.

It comes out freaking awesome and you have delicious, lean turkey breast for sandwiches (WAAAAY better than lunch meat style turkey breast!), or to put on salads ... for about 5-6 servings. It's also STELLAR for making turkey soup. Can also make some gravy from the drippings but not a lot, it doesn't put out that much drippings in general.

1. What time is dinner? I can bring wine.

Seriously that sounds (and looks) awesome. I love rosemary on both turkey and beef. I’ll bet that would make a fabulous Thanksgiving dinner with some roasted asparagus and smashed redskin potatoes….

We can rock tunes and drink wine while it cooks, doesn't take that long
