turkey on the BBQ grill

We are conducting a feasibility study on BBQing the turkey. We have 27 people coming to Thanksgiving Dinner (in case you missed the gazillion other times I mentioned this) and we think we need a two-turkey meal.

I rubbed it with a mixture of chopped fresh rosemary and thyme, kosher salt, montreal steak seasoning, and olive oil. Then we popped it onto the grill. We ran the heat up to about 350 and then fiddled with the burners to try to hold the heat there. We basted it a few times. At 12 pounds, it took about 3.5 hours to cook. It looked good and it tasted good. As this was just a test turkey, we didn't tie the legs up, so the pic isn't as fetching as it could be.
