Place marinade in a resealable bag with the turkey thighs, reserving a small portion to use for basting.
Marinate for no less than one hour, preferably overnight.
Heat BBQ to 400ºF (205ºC) and grill turkey thighs turning frequently and brushing with reserved marinade for 35-40 minutes or until a digital meat thermometer inserted deep into the meat away from bone, registers 165ºF (74ºC).
