Blaze Your Bird
Tired of the tried and true family turkey recipe? If you’re hosting a holiday gathering this year, think outside the oven and blaze your bird.
Benefits of Grilling Your Turkey
- MORE OVEN SPACE
Forget juggling oven space between your festive foul and succulent sides. Grilling your turkey leaves more room in your Viking oven for yummy yams, savory squash, and of course, pumpkin pie!
- MORE KITCHEN SPACE
Guests can gather ’round the grill and enjoy an outdoor cocktail instead of being cooped up in the hot kitchen.
- MORE TIME
Instead of slaving away basting your bird, let it soak in a bountiful brine. Grilling requires less active cooking time, freeing you up to whip, blend, and stir the rest of your magnificent meal.
- MORE FLAVOR
Grilling your turkey for shorter periods helps it retain its full, juicy flavor.
