How to mop your bone-in turkey breast on the grill

Mopping the turkey is a method used to keep turkey moist and flavorful. A mop sauce is usually thinner than most barbecue sauces. It is applied with a barbecue mop or brush.

  • STEP 1

    Whisk together the ingredients of your mop sauce so it has a nice consistency.

  • STEP 2

    Load up your brush with mop sauce. If it’s not thick enough to stick to the brush, it won’t stick to the turkey.

  • STEP 3

    While your turkey is grilling, brush liberally with the mop sauce every hour.

    Rotate and re-apply mop sauce at least once an hour until you’ve used it all up.

    Mopping is incorporated into this Nashville Hot Turkey Sandwich recipe to make it one that’s guaranteed to impress.
