Ingredients
  • 11 cups cold water
  • 1 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1/3 cup salt
  • 1 bone-in whole turkey breast (5 to 6 pounds), thawed if frozen
  • 3 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried marjoram leaves
  • 1 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1 teaspoon garlic-pepper blend
Directions
1. 
In 6-quart container or stockpot, stir water, honey, Dijon mustard and salt until honey and salt are dissolved. Add turkey breast to brine mixture. Cover; refrigerate at least 12 hours but no longer than 24 hours.
2. 
Heat gas or charcoal grill for indirect cooking as directed by manufacturer. Remove turkey from brine mixture; rinse thoroughly under cool running water and pat dry. Discard brine.
3. 
In small bowl, mix remaining ingredients; brush over turkey. Insert ovenproof meat thermometer into turkey so tip is in thickest part of breast and does not touch bone.
4. 
Place turkey on unheated side of 2-burner gas grill or over drip pan on charcoal grill. (If using one-burner gas grill, cook over low heat.) Cover grill; cook over medium heat 1 hour.
5. 
Rotate turkey 1/2 turn; cook covered 45 to 60 minutes longer or until thermometer reads 170 degrees F.
6. 
Remove turkey from grill. Cover with foil; let stand 5 to 10 minutes before slicing.
Tip:
1. 
High Altitude (3500-6500 ft): Cover grill; cook turkey over medium heat 1 hour. Rotate turkey 1/2 turn; cook covered 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes longer.
