Let's get grilling

1 Build a two-zone charcoal fire for both direct and indirect cooking using Kingsford® Charcoal by situating the coals on only one side of the grill, leaving the other side void. Preheat the smoker to 250°F.
2 In a bowl, mix rub ingredients together with a whisk or with gloved hands.
3 Sprinkle the turkey breast generously on all sides with 2 tablespoons of the rub. Remaining rub can be stored in a sealed container in a cool, dry place for several months. Toss generously on any BBQ, except the whole hog.
4 Place the breast on the grill over indirect heat and cook it for about 90 minutes, or until it gets the right mahogany color and the internal temperature reaches 130°F.
5 Wrap the turkey tightly in foil, flip it over, and place back in the smoker until the internal temperature is 165°F, about 45 to 60 minutes longer.
6 Remove the foil and retain the collected juices. Let the turkey rest for 30 minutes. Slice, then pour the collected juices over the sliced meat.
7 Sam Jones Tip:
Any remaining rub can be stored in a sealed container in a cool, dry place for several months.
