  1. Set grill up for indirect heat at 325* F. (Add chunks of apple wood when desired temp is reached)
  2. Season the exterior of the bacon wrapped turkey breast with BBQ dry rub and place them on the grill.
  3. Cook to an internal temp of 155*F. Then add a light coat of sauce to finish appearance with a beautiful glaze.
