A quick-reference timetable that includes all the foods you love to grill.

Grilling Timetable

Timetable for Grilling Poultry

The times below are based on medium direct heat. Grill poultry until the direct temperature is at least 165°F, or until juice is clear when center of thickest part is cut; for whole chickens and turkeys, measure temperature in thigh, not touching bone. Turn chicken breasts and turkey breasts and parts once halfway through grilling. Turn chicken parts two or three times.
