Set turkey on the grill.

Keep the barrel between 350 and 400.

Between beers or glasses of wine, or Old Fashioneds, sprinkle with additional wood chips.

In two hours check with your Digital Meat Thermometer. It should be 160 deg in the thickest part of the breast (will get to 165 deg as it rests before you slice).

Remove from grill and place on a MAC Jack Carr Crossed Tomahawks Cutting Board.

Pour wine while you let it sit for 10 to 30 minutes. Most recipes say to wait 30 minutes to ensure the internal temp gets to 165 deg but 10 minutes seems to work great too.

Cut with a Montana Knife Company Bighorn Chef Knife and serve!
