yields about 12 servings
One 12.5-pound turkey
Bicentennial Seasoning (http://www.thespicehouse.com/spices/bicentennial-seasoning) from The Spice House (or make your own mix of coarse salt, cracked black pepper, sugar, coriander and turmeric)
Preheat gas grill to 350 degrees.
Remove neck, gravy packet and giblet packet from turkey. Rinse with water, inside and out, and pat dry.
Brush with bacon grease and rub with Bicentennial Seasoning, both inside and out.
Place entire turkey on grill, over indirect heat. Close grill lid and cook between 320 and 350 degrees for three hours. Time will fluctuate based on size of bird. When the internal temperature is 180 degrees, it’s done.
Let stand 15 minutes before carving.
