What you will need:
1 Turkey 12 lb.

1 tbsp. Butter or Margarine

1/2 c. Water

Rinse bird inside and out. Place breast side up in roasting pan. Do NOT STUFF TURKEY YET! Lightly brush outside and cavity with butter or margarine. Sprinkle seasonings on outside and in cavity. Add 1/2 cup water to bottom of pan.
Insert meat thermometer into thigh, do not touch a bone. Place pan on grill preheated to medium and close lid. After 20-30 minutes, lower heat to med-low and tent turkey with foil to prevent over-browning. Baste every 15-20 minutes. For barbecues with temperature settings, keep barbecue adjusted to 325 - 375F (160-190C). Add more water to pan if it dries out during cooking.
