    Has anyone ever taken a turkey breast and made a smoked pastrami out of it? I know they sell turkey pastrami at the deli counter, but home made is always better.

    I smoke turkey breasts all the time. One of my favorites.
    The first time I tried it I did a pastrami brine since I didn't have any tender quick then. It came out pretty good but I also only gave it a light coating of pepper.

    Did another one but don't know where that thread it as.
    Next time I buy a breast I'm going to cure it properly with TQ and other seasonings and then smoke, see how well that comes out.
