Texas Dry Rub Slow Grilled Turkey Breast

Day 4 of our Christmas Turkey on the Grill series. Today we are looking at a Texas dry rub recipe for a smaller meal. If you are not going to be grilling for a large group of family and friends this Christmas then there is not much reason to grill a whole turkey. The grill masters at have a great recipe for a small gathering or several meals. The recipe says that it makes 8 servings, but my guess is that your going to like it so much that you don’t get more than 4 out of it.
