Time to start thinking about the holidays and I wanted to do a practice run on some turkey. I picked up a breast portion weighing just under 9 1/2 lbs.
Pulled back the skin and injected it with a mix of EVOO, red wine, garlic powder and onion powder. Rubbed the outside with the same mix.
Pulled the skin back over the bird and placed in the MES. Smoked with apple.
I probed each breast and pulled when one side was at 162 and the other was 164. Used a foil pan to catch drippings for gravy.
I don't care for the skin so I pulled it off and got to slicing. You can see some of the spices from the injection process.
Super moist, tender and delicious.
I enjoyed it so much I picked up another one when I saw em at a good price at wally world. I'll probably smoke it tomorrow.
