Smoking turkey breast ahead of time

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I want to hunt on thanksgiving so I am considering smoking a turkey breast on Wednesday afternoon. Any advice on reheating or should I just plan to do this on Thursday ? I am brining the bird.

You can Smoke it, on Wed, over a Pan with some Celery, Carrots and Onions...To catch the Dripping then add Chicken Broth and simmer this for 30-60 minutes to make a JUS...Thicken the JUS to make Gravy....Slice up the Turkey put in a Pan add the Gravy and cover with foil and into the refrigerator until Thurs...An hour or so before service...Put the Turkey in a 300-325*F oven and heat it up to 165*F and serve...All ready to go and you don't even have to take your Camo' off!...JJ

Hey I am thinking about doing the same it will be my first time doing it this way, do you brine yours and what temp do you smoke it, if I put Mortons Tender cure in in brine for 12hrs or so should be good?? my smoker only will get to about 200 degrees, they will be small turkey breasts any help would be great, I know IT needs to be 165. can't wait for your picks. Thanks
