Our family and friends enjoy this and hope you do too. A flavorful layer of basil, lemon, garlic and romano cheese under the skin. I have the butcher cut one turkey in half and use one half for this. Use a meat thermometer- working towards at least 170 degrees-no one enjoys under or over cooked poultry and with charcoal grilling it is pretty tricky to have a standard that fits everyone. Dh puts the meat thermometer in thickest part right away at beginning of grilling. Servings and cooking time depend upon size of turkey breast. I serve with Summer Squash Dressing, roasted asparagus, coleslaw, and my Sour Cream Peach Pie . Hubby has made this several times.
