Step 1

Preheat the Traeger grill to 225 degrees f with lid closed for 15 minutes.

Step 2

While the grill is preheating, prepare the turkey and season inside and out generously with kosher or sea salt.

Step 3

Place butter under the turkey skin. The butter will be used to baste the turkey periodically throughout the cooking process. And it makes an excellent gravy too!

Step 4

Place the turkey inside of the roasting pan and fill with your favorite stuffing.

Step 5

Add the turkey to the Traeger and smoke at 225 degrees for 2 1/2 to 3 hours.

Step 6

Change the temperature to 350 degrees and cook for 3 1/2 to 4 hours. Baste the turkey with the butter and drippings periodically.

Step 7

The turkey will be finished when the internal temperature of the turkey breast reaches 165 degrees f and the internal temperature is 175℉ in the thigh next to the bone.

Step 8

Remove from the grill and allow to rest for about 30 minutes before serving.
