Light multiple fires and heat your Egg to 350. Set Grill Grates on top of ConvEGGtor basket. Place turkey breast side down with feet facing the back of your grill. Cook for about 30 minutes. Use the grill grate tool and a pizza peel to remove the turkey from the grill so you can flip for the second half of cooking. WIth a probe thermometer, probe the coolest part of the breast meat. Return to grill with legs facing back.Take turkey off the Egg when it reaches an internal temperature of 160. ENJOY!
