Just a simple barbecue roast turkey for Easter.
Add washed giblets, 2 onions and 2 carrots peeled and chopped to the roasting tin.
Add a tablespoon of rosemary, 4 cloves of garlic and a pint of hot water.
Prepared the turkey for normal oven roasting, we added a smoked streaky bacon lattice top to help keep the breast moist.
Add a coating of olive oil to the turkey and season with salt and black pepper.
Add the turkey to the roasting tin.
Cover the turkey with foil and seal on the edge of the tin. Add to a preheated BBQ at around 180 degrees using the indirect cooking method.
Turn the middle burner off so no direct heat under the roasting tin.
One hour before the end of the estimated cooking time remove the foil and continue cooking.
20 minutes before the end of the cooking time glaze the turkey with a 50/50 mixture of orange marmalade and honey, glaze again after ten minutes
Remove turkey cover with foil and allow the rest, it will stay hot for over an hour so you can now roast your potatoes.BBQ Smoked Turkey Recipe
