Ingredients
For turkey:
  • 4 turkey wings and drummettes
  • 2 turkey drumsticks
  • 2 turkey thighs
  • 2 bone-in turkey breasts
  • 4 turkey sausages
For rub:
  • 1 tsp garlic powder

Instructions
  1. 1. Combine spices to make a rub.

  3. 3. BBQ over medium heat until cooked through, no longer pink, and the meat registers 165°F (74°C) on a meat thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the meat. (Heat setting and cook time will depend on the power of your BBQ and the size of each cut.)
  4. 4. While cooking, combine sauce ingredients in a hand blender or mini chopper and blend to combine.
  5. 5. Baste all turkey cuts generously in the last 10 - 15 minutes (depending on cut) of cooking time. 
  6. 6. Approximate cooking times:

    o wings and drummettes: 8 - 10 mins per side

    o sausages: 8 - 10 mins per side

    o drumsticks and thighs: 12 - 18 mins per side

    o bone-in breast: 20 - 30 mins per side 

  7. 7. Set aside to rest, 15 mins.
  8. 8. Baste again with sauce before serving.
Recipe Notes

Note: Heat setting and cook time will depend on the power of your BBQ and the size and weight of each cut.

 

TIP: For best results when cooking your turkey breast and to avoid drying out, cook your bone-in breast off heat.  To do this, place the breast over a burner that is off while surrounding burners are on.
