Turkey Ingredients: 

  • 1 tablespoon canola oil, plus more for brushing on the turkey

  • 1 small red onion, coarsely chopped

  • 3/4 cups apple cider vinegar

  • 1 1/2 cups sugar

  • 2 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and coarsely chopped

  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh sage leaves

  • Salt and freshly ground pepper

  • 1 whole (20 pound) turke


  • Preheat the grill to medium-high.

  • Heat oil in a medium saucepan on the grates of the grill or on a burner. Add the onion and cook until soft, about 3 minutes.

  • Add the vinegar and sugar and cook until the sugar has melted.

  • Stir in the chopped apples and cook until the apples are soft and the mixture is slightly thickened, about 10 minutes.

  • Remove from the heat and let cool slightly.

  • Place the apple mixture in a food processor or blender and add the sage. Pulse until smooth. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Let cool to room temperature.

  • Have a large drip pan filled with a little water positioned under where the turkey will be placed on the grill.

  • Brush the entire turkey with oil and season with salt and pepper.

  • Grill the turkey on all sides until golden brown.

  • Reduce the heat of the grill to medium to maintain a constant temperature of 350 degrees F.

  • Cook turkey until a thermometer inserted into the thigh registers 170 to 175 degrees F.

  • Begin brushing the entire turkey with the apple glaze during the last 15 minutes of cooking.

  • Remove from the grill and brush with more of the glaze.

  • Let rest for 15 minutes before slicing.

  • Grill the sliced apples for 2 to 3 minutes on each side and serve with the turkey.
