Grilling a turkey breast?

Tomorrow we are going to grill sweet corn and tators. I was planning on grilling chicken breasts too, but thought about a turkey breast.

Any thoughts or suggestions? I've never even bought a turkey breast, let alone grilled one!

Turkey is pretty lean. I'd brine it at least and/or wrap it in foil. I don't think it will take very kindly to grilling unless it's very rapid.

LAst time I attempet to a turkey on the grill we smoked and it was really dry. Maybe indirect grilling and a pan of water under it? Brining sounds like a good idea as well.

Take care,

Brining or marinade are great ideas. You also can cut the breast into thin cutlet style filets. I would still use a marinade or a brine though.

Brine...cook indirect with very light smoke. Use a thermometer to check temperature in the thickest part. The key is not to over cook!

Have Fun & Enjoy!
