Method according to owner's guide for grill.
Combine honey with remaining ingredients and set aside.
During the last 45 minutes of the cooking time, brush honey
mixture over skin. For oven prepared turkey, loosely cover breast and top of
drumsticks with lightweight foil to prevent overcooking of breast. Cook turkey
