    Have the turkey breasts in the Slaughterhouse brine for poultry right now. Will be smoking them in just a little bit with some Cherry Wood.  Q-Views will be coming...of course!


    Way down in there in the murky brine!  Smells wonderful!  Okay yall....this is my first time to brine anything!

    We will see how they turn out!

    Thanks for looking!

    Thanks Red....crossing fingers that Lynn likes this better than the Thanksgiving ones.  OldSchool.....wished I had thought about that....dang it!  They are smoking away right now.  Put Cherry wood and a chunk of hickory in for the smoke.  Crossing fingers for this to turn out.  Here are some updated q-views.


    There they are---just in Witchy Woman!  Let her do her magic!


    Out of the Slaughterhouse brine.  Smells good still.


    This is the bottle of Wine I used for the cranberry sauce.


    Trying my hand at home made cranberry sauce!  Boy I am experimenting a bunch today!


    Bag of cranberries.  If this turns out...I will (of course) share the recipe.

    Thanks for looking again!

    Just cranked the temp up on Witchy Woman.  The breasts are at about 155*....so we are making progress.  Peach Cobbler is in the oven. (made it by the same recipe as the blackberry one). Green beans cooking...will be adding stuffing and cornbread later.

    Here is how they look at last peek!



    Getting a nice caramel color on the skins.
