Traditional Thanksgiving Turkey

The best traditional Thanksgiving turkey recipe calls for simple spices and primal wood-fired flavor. Traeger is your recipe for success!

Ingredients

(1) 18-20lb turkey
1/2 lb butter, softened
8 sprigs thyme
6 cloves garlic, minced
1 sprig rosemary, rough chop
1 tbsp cracked black pepper
1/2 tbsp kosher salt

Preparation

Start the Traeger grill on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes). Set the temperature to 300 degrees F and preheat, lid closed, for 5 to 10 minutes.

In a small bowl combine butter with minced garlic, thyme leaves, chopped rosemary, black pepper and kosher salt.

Prep the turkey by separating the skin from the breast creating a pocket to stuff the compound butter in. Cover the entire breast with ¼ inch thickness of butter mixture.

Season the whole turkey with kosher salt and black pepper.

Place turkey on grill and smoke for 3-4 hours or until the temperature reaches 160 degrees F.

Cover with foil and let rest for 10-15 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
