Brined Turkey Grilled Over Charcoal is an easy way to have the best Thanksgiving ever with very little work. Brining is easy and a great way to add flavor, and keep the juiciness of your meat. Case in point, we accidentally overcooked our very big bird (14+ lbs). I was feeling rather nonchalant about the whole grilling process this time., I was going to let it go for an hour or two, and then put the meat thermometers in. It should need at least 4 hours, right? Well we put the thermometers in, one in the breast and one in the thigh, and it was DONE! We're aiming for 165°F; the breast was 195°F and the thigh was 180°F! The poor thing barely got any color, but we pulled it off and foiled it, then wrapped it in a tea towel to keep the heat. When I carved it a few hours - Yes it was that early - later, it was the most succulent bird ever. Juices were running everywhere! Dinner was awesome.
