Turkey Recipes


Honey Spice Glazed Turkey


16 pounds whole turkey - thawed if frozen
2 tbsp honey
1 tsp water
2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp ground allspice
1/4 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp ground red pepper


Prepare turkey according to package directions and roast in shallow roasting pan in 325F oven or cook on outdoor grill using Indirect Heat 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 until temperature reaches 180F in the thighs. Let stand 15 to 20 minutes before carving.

Note: Pan drippings can be used to make gravy. The spice adds flavor and enriches the color of the gravy.

Yield - about 20 servings
