Although turkey is a popular meal around the holidays, turkey breast makes a great meal any time of the year! You can adjust the seasonings depending on the type of meal you're making and cook the meat in the oven or slow cooker. Roasting the turkey breast will give it browned, crispy skin, while slow-cooking the turkey will give you a flavorful hands-off meal.
I created a flavorful compound butter using citrus and fresh herbs, half of which is used to rub between the skin and the meat, and the other half is melted and basted on to the skin of the turkey to create a flavorful, crisp, golden brown skin, which in my humble opinion is the best part of the turkey anyway. This recipe is prepared on a charcoal grill but you can easily adapt this for a gas grill or even a Weber smoker. Start by creating a medium-hot fire about degrees with an indirect cooking zone.

Every year I roast at least a 20 pound turkey. We usually have around 14 people for dinner, so I want enough to feed everyone and, of course, I want to have enough for leftovers. This year, I got to thinking that not everyone has 14 people for dinner.
Years ago we started adding a whole grilled turkey breast along with a whole roasted turkey on Thanksgiving. I have a nice size group with my brother and sister in law, their family and ours, but as time went on we started to realize everyone likes to eat only the white meat. When it came to leftovers for everyone to take home there would hardly be any white meat left, and no one wanted the dark.
Grill, meet turkey. In an unexpected flavor twist, traditional turkey breast hits the grates for a moist, smoky main dish. Soak wood chips in enough water to cover for about 30 minutes.
