In a large barbecue, fill the bottom with 2.25kg charcoal. Light and when ready, spread to cover the bottom of the barbecue.
Stuff turkey with onion. Rub the skin with salt and pepper.
Place the turkey in a deep roasting tin. Place the tin on the barbecue cooking grate. Pour wine over the turkey. Cover the top of the turkey with foil.
Cover the barbecue with the lid and open the vents. Cook the turkey for 60 to 90 minutes or until meat is to your liking. Baste frequently. You might need to add water to the tin if the wine evaporates.
