Turkey Breast and Ginger Ale

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 

Took a stab at making some Turkey Breast today...Used Ginger Ale to soak it and boy did it soak it up like a nice cold Soda Pop!  Added some nice sweet seasoning along with some Honey; then hit the Smoker for the Fun to start.  I did a 50/50 mix in the water pan with Water / Ginger Ale...kept the sweet flavors going!

 

From after a couple of flips, added the Glaze of Honey and Wow did it Pop!

looks very nice.  how did the skin turn out? was it crisped up or did you just pull it off before you ate.  

 

It looks very juicy and wonderful. well done.

The skin on the Legs turned out crisp...you could bite through it.  The Skin on the Turkey Breast fell off after plating...but quickly became a meal for us to enjoy the flavor of it.  Thanks!

did you marinate the chick in the ginger ale?

No...Only the Turkey Breast went in the Ginger Ale.  My wife thought it would add a nice sweet flavor to the Bird...sure did.  The chicken legs had only a Apple Wood Rub on and that was it, besides teh 50/50 mix of water and Ginger Ale in the water bowl.

As noted above, very simple Tomato Basil & Garlic on the Turkey and on the Chicken Legs, my son wanted a sweet rub and we just used one by McCormicks "Sweet & Smoky" + the Honey.  Let's just say he ate all the chicken legs himself, before we could ask how they were.

 

My wife just found a rub by William Sonoma called Coffee & Spice Rub...smells AMAZING.  Waiting to give it a try on some Beef!

 

I have started to create some of my own, but for $5 the rub is worth the try.  I have to say that William Sonoma sure has some goodies for cooking/grilling/smoking.  Worth a try for those of us trying to get some Smoke Time under our belts.

KDSoup,

 

I used the Ginger Ale as a brine with Salt, Rosemary, Sage, and Time.  I then smoked them with Maple dust in my AMNS and they turned out great.  Best smoke I have done so far.  Thanks for the great idea.
