Start the Traeger grill on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes). Set the temperature to 300 degrees F and preheat, lid closed, for 5 to 10 minutes.
In a small bowl, combine butter with minced garlic, thyme leaves, chopped rosemary, black pepper and kosher salt.
Prep the turkey by separating the skin from the breast creating a pocket to stuff the butter-herb mixture in. Cover the entire breast with 1/4" thickness of butter mixture.
Season the whole turkey with kosher salt and black pepper. Optional: Stuff turkey cavity with Traditional Stuffing recipe.
Place turkey on the grill and smoke for 3-4 hours. Check the internal temperature, the desired temperature is 175 degrees F in the thigh next to the bone, and 160 degrees F in the breast. Turkey will continue to cook once taken off grill to reach a final temperature of 165 degrees F in the breast.
Let rest for 10-15 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
