While grill heats up, place butter, salt, and chili powder in a bowl and put it in the microwave for 15 seconds at a time, stirring in between each, until butter is melted. Pour melted butter into a turkey injector and then slowly inject butter into the turkey breast 7-8 times. Make sure to inject both horizontally and vertically. Combine dry ingredients and apply rub under skin and on top generously. For grilling, make sure the coals are spread out equally over both sides of the grill. The grill should be 350-425 degrees for the turkey. Place any wood for smoking in the grill if desired. If not desired place turkey onto grill rack and place lid on top. Don’t remove the turkey until internal temperature is 165 degrees and skin is brown. If skin is browning too fast, cover turkey in foil. Once turkey is done, let rest for 10 minutes then serve!
