Ingredients

Turkey

  • 8 to 10 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 2- to 2 1/2-pound bone-in turkey breast half

Chipotle Sweet 'n Spicy Marinade

  • 1/3 cup real maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 or 2 chipotle chilies in adobo sauce (from 7-ounce can)
  • 1 or 2 cloves garlic, peeled

  • 3
    Place turkey on grill; brush with marinade. Cover and grill turkey over drip pan and 5 to 6 inches from medium heat 1 hour 30 minutes to 2 hours, turning occasionally and brushing with marinade, until meat thermometer reads 170°F and juice is no longer pink when center is cut. Let stand 5 minutes before serving. Discard any remaining marinade.

Expert Tips

  • tip 1
    Garlic is a phytonutrient--a plant nutrient. It's not necessary for life, but it may have some healthful benefits and lots of flavor!
  • tip 2
    When grilling over indirect heat, food is cooked away from the heat. If using coals, arrange them around the edge of the firebox, and place a drip pan under the grilling area. If using a dual-burner gas grill, heat only one side, and place the food under the burner that is not lit. For single-burner gas grills, place food in a foil tray or on several layers of aluminum foil and use low heat.
