With the sweet apple flavors mixing with the salty goodness of the bacon, your guests will be talking about this holiday feast for years to come.

The turkey is wrapped in bacon, lattice style which holds it nicely in place while it cooks away on the grill at 300°F.

Note: It is recommended to use Apple Hardwood Pellets in this recipe to really enhance the fruit flavors from the apples.

  • Cutting Board


Bigger. Hotter. Heavier. Tip


Make sure the turkey you buy at the store is pre-brined. This will save you time and refrigerator space from having to brine it yourself in a huge pan.
