    I havent done any of this in a while so I thought I would post some

    I started with 2 bone in turkey breasts.

    I filleted them out last week and put them in my corn beef pastrami wet cure brine

    they stayed there for 8 days

    I took them out this morning and rinsed and soaked them for a few hours, changing the water twice

    I fry tested a piece to make sure it wasnt too salty.

     next I patted them nice and dry and sprinkled a little garlic on the inside then tied them up

    next I coated them with garlic, black pepper and coriander

    I am smoking them wit hickory and a touch of mesquite  for about 4 hrs

    then I will foil them and finish them in my Altoshaam oven to 175*

    cool over night and slice for some nice mesquite turkey deli meat!

    stay tuned

    rinsed and soaking


    patted dry


    tied and ready for the smoker

    well here they are

    they turned out fantastic!

    I will put another pic or 2 up tomorrow evening after they cool over night

    I had to slice off a little to taste and the mesquite gave it a perfect touch.

    I have done these allot before and always used cherry wood, even on my beef stramis

    but I think I may try  the hickory/ mesquite on my next beef strami too

    these took a total of 9 hrs

    they spent 5 hrs in the GOSM with smoke @215 then 4 hrs in my slow roast oven @200*

    pulled them out @ 175*

    hot out of the oven



    juicy as can be
