For the past couple of years my choice of meat for grilling and BBQ’ing has been turkey. I do like to BBQ almost anything, but have had great luck and mouthwatering meals with turkey! Many people think of it as a holiday meat, where the menu usually consists of a full bird filled with stuffing, served with mashed potatoes and gravy. There are many parts of the turkey you can use for everyday and every occasion!
