Maple Orange-Glazed Turkey Roast

Makes: 10 to 12 servings
Prep 20 mins Grill 2 hrs 30 mins to 2 hrs Stand 15 mins
Maple Orange-Glazed Turkey Roast
  • 1  clove garlic, minced
  • 1  tablespoon  snipped fresh marjoram or 1 teaspoon dried marjoram, crushed
  • 1/4  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/4  teaspoon  pepper
  • 3/4  cup  orange juice
  • 1  tablespoon  cornstarch
  • 1/2  cup  maple syrup
  • 1  teaspoon  finely shredded orange peel
  • 1 2 1/2 - 3 1/2 pound  boneless turkey roast
  • 2  tablespoons  butter, melted

1. In a small bowl combine garlic, marjoram, salt, and pepper; set aside. For glaze, in a small saucepan stir together the orange juice and cornstarch; add half of the seasoning mixture. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir 1 minute more. Stir in maple syrup and orange peel; set aside.

2. Brush the turkey roast with melted butter and rub with remaining seasoning mixture. Insert a meat thermometer near the center of the roast.

3. For a charcoal grill, arrange medium-hot coals around a drip pan. Test for medium heat above the pan. Place the turkey roast directly on the grill rack over the pan. Cover; grill for 2 to 2-1/2 hours or until thermometer registers 165F. Add coals to maintain heat every 30 minutes. Brush with glaze the last 30 minutes of grilling. Remove meat from grill. Cover with foil; let stand for 15 minutes before carving. (The meats temperature will rise 5F during standing.) Bring any remaining glaze to boiling; pass with turkey. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Adjust for indirect cooking. Grill as above.)
