    picked up a boneless turkey breast yesterday, and after the success of the pastrami i did last week, i'm thinking of doing a turkey pastrami.

    Should I brine the turkey first or just throw my pastrami rub on there and toss it into the smoker?

    My inclination would be to brine first. Mainly due to the lack of fat in the turkey breast- any lean poultry seems to benefit greatly from brining.

    thanks cowgirl. I think i'm gonna leave the rub on...it's my favorite part.
