Whole turkey recipes
Through years of turkey-cooking experience, we have perfected our technique for making a moist, stuffed turkey breast. Perhaps a little unusually but perfectly Australian, we choose to cook our stuffed turkey breast on a kettle barbeque. After preparing the BBQ, season the stuffed turkey breast generously with salt. Using a probe thermometer to monitor temperature, cook at 110C to an internal temperature of 62C. This will take around 3 hours.
At this point, remove the turkey from the BBQ. Leave the lid off, fully open the bottom dampers and get the coals hot - to prepare for grilling (add more fuel if necessary).
Once hot, place the turkey breast skin side down over the hot coals. Cook, turning frequently until the skin is dark brown and crispy (being careful to avoid flare-ups). Rest the turkey breast for 15 minutes then carve into slices and serve with plenty of sauce.
