Recipe from: Maciek Zurawski from Grillin' With Dad

  • Step 1

    To make the marinade, combine the soy sauce, pineapple juice, ketchup, minced garlic and minced ginger in a bowl. Mix well.
  • Step 2

    Pour the marinade over the Turkey Thighs, reserving about 1/3 of marinade for basting later. Let the turkey thighs marinate for at least 1 hour in the refrigerator, or leave in the refrigerator overnight to maximize flavor.
  • Step 3

    When ready, fire up the grill and set it up for dual-zone grilling, leaving one side hot and 1 side cooler. Set the temperature to medium, around 350°F.
  • Step 4

    Start the turkey on the direct heat side of the grill, turning them every 2-3 minutes, until both sides are nicely browned and charred up.
  • Step 5

    Move the turkey to the indirect side to finish cooking, and baste them with the reserved marinade every 5-10 minutes to build up that delicious flavor.
  • Step 6

    Pull the turkey from the grill when it reaches an internal temperature of 165°F and let it rest for 10 minutes. Garnish with fresh chopped parsley and grilled pineapple slices. Serve!
