8 cups warm water
1 cup orange juice
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup coarse salt
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh garlic
2 teaspoons freshly grated orange zest
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 (4- to 5-pound) whole bone-in turkey breast, thawed
6 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter, melted
How to make
Combine all brine ingredients in extra-large bowl; stir until sugar and salt are dissolved. Place turkey breast in large oven roasting bag; pour brine over turkey. Tightly seal bag; place into bowl. Refrigerate, turning occasionally, for at least 6 hours or overnight.
Heat one side of gas grill on medium or charcoal grill until coals are ash white. Place coals to one side in charcoal grill. Make aluminum foil drip pan; place opposite coals.
Combine butter and 4 teaspoons chili powder in bowl. Remove turkey breast from brine; discard brine. Pat turkey dry with paper towels.
Place turkey breast onto grill over drip pan. Grill 15 minutes. Brush generously with butter mixture. Close lid on grill. Grill, turning and basting occasionally with remaining butter mixture, 2 hours or until internal temperature reaches 165°F or juices run clear when pierced with fork.
- Try using hickory or mesquite grill planks or aromatic wood chips for some smokiness during grilling. If using aromatic wood chips, soak them in water for about an hour before placing them inside the grill.
