Select a turkey that fits your needs - fresh, if available. I find
the cheaper brands as good as the premium. If it is frozen,
carefully follow the directions for thawing. Trim excess fat and
skin and pat dry.

Fire up the grill for roasting - about 350 degrees. Build a good,
large bed of coals and reduce the heat by closing down the air
supply. Collect a small amount - 3 to 4 pounds of green fruit
wood, white oak and hickory.

Sprinkle the turkey inside and out with a mixture of:

1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon celery seed, ground
1 Tablespoon sage
1 Tablespoon thyme
1 Tablespoon fresh ground black pepper
1 Tablespoon salt

Place turkey on the grill, opposite the coals, breast up. Close
the grill and go away for about an hour.

Check the temperature of the exhaust, look over the coals and put
on a few pieces of green wood. If you must use chips or dried
wood, soak in water for at least thirty minutes.

Maintain the temperature between 300 - 350 degrees with a gentle
smoke floating from the exhaust. Tidy up, close the grill and go
rest from your labors.

Check back in about an hour later and insert your handy thermometer
in the center of the thickest part of the bird. When it reads 165
degrees, time is up. It is done. Remove and let it sit for about
20 minutes before carving.
