Grill-Roasted Turkey Breast for Charcoal Grill
It's easy for bone-in, skin-on turkey breast to end up dry, bland, and with soggy skin. How do you grill a turkey breast so that it turns out smoky, well seasoned, and juicy?
Why This Recipe Works
Bone-in, skin-on turkey breasts cook relatively quickly, but most recipes still produce dry meat, bland flavor, and soggy skin. For a grill-roasted turkey breast recipe that turned out smoky, well seasoned, and juicy, we seasoned the turkey throughout using an overnight salt rub. We then wiped the skin dry and pierced it (to allow some of the fat to drain away), then applied a second rub just before grilling, which created a crisp, coffee-colored skin.
