I'm reading recipes for grilled turkey (whole) and want to give it a try this year on our gas grill. There's one recipe on allrecipes that gets great reviews that involves searing the turkey on both sides first and then grilling breast-side down. Other recipes that don't require searing and keep breast up get good reviews too. Wanting to make things as simple as possible, I'd just as well skip the searing step if it doesn't make that much difference. And does breast down make a significant difference when grilling?
