No recipe image available.Grilled turkey breast with a doctored barbecue sauce.

Recipe Ingredients:

1 (approximately 7-pound) turkey breast with bone
3/4 teaspoon salt - divided use
3/4 teaspoon ground black pepper - divided use
1 cup barbecue sauce
1 tablespoon white distilled vinegar
2 teaspoons firmly packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon brown mustard
1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

Cooking Directions:

  1. Prepare grill to medium-high heat.
  2. Sprinkle turkey breast evenly with 1/2 teaspoon of the salt and 1/2 teaspoon of the pepper. Place turkey, breast-side down, on prepared grill. Cook to a golden brown, turning to sear all sides, about 15 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine barbecue sauce, vinegar, brown sugar, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper; mix well.
  4. Baste entire surface of turkey with sauce. Continue grilling, allowing surface to caramelize and turn deep golden brown, but without burning, about 15 minutes.
  5. Remove breast from the grill and wrap in aluminum foil, sealing all sides. Return to grill until turkey has reached an internal temperature of 170°F to 175°F (approximately 80°C), about 45 minutes. Remove from grill and let sit for 10 minutes before carving.
