Palmquist grilled turkey

Turkey on the grill

We used a 12 pounder...

Put it in an old cake pan, sprayed it with Pam, and dumped about a cup
of water in the pan.
Next time I would suggest putting alum. foil in the pan and spraying the
foil (and the pan I suppose)...just to make clean up easier.
I put the turkey on it's side....so the breast skin didn't stick.
But it really didn't stick anyway.  The Pam worked good and I'm sure the
water helped.

Basted it with vegetable oil to which some garlic salt (1/2 tsp?) was
added.
I also put a quartered small onion inside the turkey.
I basted it probably 4 times with the oil/garlic salt during the 3
hours.\

I turned the pan 180 degrees about half way thru just to make sure it
cooked evenly. 

Put grill on a setting the low side of medium...temp guage read
Medium.  It was done (the indicator popped out) in just under 3 hours.

I also threw some potatoes right in the cake pan in the drippings about
2 hours into the grilling.  Potatoes were very good.  The drippings kept
them moist and didn't make them taste any different than I would have
expected.

I'll be doing it again...it's a great meal with no heat added to the
house.  It's also low mess factor...cleaned up pretty easy, but I'd
still use aluminum foil I think...
