Bourbon-Glazed Barbecue Turkey

TEN TO TWELVE SERVINGS
    
2 cups apricot nectar
2 cups apple juice, plus more for basting
1 1/4 cups dark brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup salt
3 cloves garlic, smashed and peeled
1 1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 teaspoons freshly ground pepper
1 fresh or dried bay leaf
1 large bone-in turkey breast (7 to 9 pounds)
6 turkey drumsticks (about 3/4 pound each)
1/2 cup bourbon
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
4 tablespoons paprika
4 tablespoons yellow mustard
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon onion powder
2 packets Goya Sazón con Azafrán (saffron seasoning)

DIRECTIONS

1. In a large pot, combine 4 cups water with the apricot nectar, apple juice, 1/2 cup brown sugar, the granulated sugar, salt, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, pepper and bay leaf. Bring to a simmer and stir, then remove from the heat and let cool. Strain the brine and, using a marinade injector, inject it into the turkey breast and drumsticks, distributing throughout (or just place the turkey in the brine). Cover the turkey with foil and refrigerate overnight.
2. In a container with a tight-fitting lid, combine the bourbon, honey, vinegar and 1/2 cup brown sugar. Shake vigorously to blend; set aside.
3. Preheat the grill to low. In a bowl, combine the remaining 1/4 cup brown sugar with the paprika, mustard, chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder and saffron seasoning to form a paste. Dry the turkey with a paper towel and rub the paste all over the turkey parts. Grill the turkey, turning the breasts once, until the meat reaches 165° on a meat thermometer, about 3 hours, brushing the turkey with apple juice every half hour to keep it from drying out. During the last half hour of cooking, brush occasionally with the reserved bourbon-honey glaze.

Re: Bourbon-Glazed Barbecue Turkey

Looks **** good.

In contrast, a typical British BBQ would be

Steak
Burgers
Chicken

Set BBQ up so coals are all smouldering. Take steak and chicken out of packets and burgers out of freezer and stick on barbie. Cook until grey, lifting up with a pair of tongs every 10 seconds and turning every 5 minutes. Serve with beans, coleslaw and potato salad.

Re: Bourbon-Glazed Barbecue Turkey

Not in my house Beast, in my house you get all sorts of well marinaded types of meat, hardly a burger  or sausage in sight ! 
Sausages I do not make, but all burgers in our house are home-made.

This recipe sounds good and I am sure  my family would enjoy it if I get around to trying it , turkey breast on the bone is not too easy to buy at this time of the year , what else could be used as a substitute please?

Re: Bourbon-Glazed Barbecue Turkey

Regarding sausages, would a piping bag and wide nozzle do instead of a machine?
