This is one of my brother-in-law's special cookout recipes. The onions, garlic and herbs in the marinade make a tasty, tender turkey, and the tempting aroma prompts the family to gather around the grill. —Sue Walker, Greentown, Indiana

"I made this recipe grilling 2 whole turkey breasts for a bridal shower in 1995 and everyone loved it. Made it again for friends yesterday and it was very easy and was very tender. I started with the 2 halves in an aluminum roasting pan and after 30 minutes, put it directly on the grate and it was very flavorful."
