Barbecued Turkey Cutlets

Total time: 25 minutes
    Turkey cutlets are an economical and flavorful meat, cut from the turkey breast, and can be used in place of, more expensive, veal scallops.  They should be about 1/4 inch (.6cm) thick.  Because they are so thin they take well to marinades and cook quickly, without drying out.
