A weekend Smoked Turkey Breast

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

nothing too fancy since this was my first breast I didn't do too much.it was already injected with some turkey broth solution so i let it be. I brushed on some honey and coated with some left over chicken rub and some rosemary powder. smoked it with go tot blend of hickory,apple,cherry.

 

my target crowd doesn't like it spicy but next time i will inject the honey and some cayenne to give it a little boost and use more spicy rub.

 

it came out pretty good. I am convinced 90 pct of that is due to getting good meat at the butcher. 10 my skill :)

 

a very impatient crowd limited my pic. I made a cranberry/walnut relish to go with it. my wife made stuffing and corn. it was a good sunday dinner.

Looks great! Was it juicy enough? I usually brine poultry.

thanks AL.

 

Berninga,

 it was very juicy and tender. that was due to the 15pct(I think) solution that was already in the turkey. since it specifically said it was turkey broth i left it alone. it was a gamble but it turned out good.

Good job and that relish looks "to die for". Bet it was outstanding with the turkey.

the relish was a food network recipe easy and very tasty. i had frozen berries but i bet some nice fresh organic berries would be outstanding!

Dewetha , good looking Breast there ;)-   I know you had fun and enjoyed the rewards.

 

The Honey and Cayenne will be a good combo and (if not overdone) will add a bit of intrigue to your Family's tastebuds.

 

Have fun and as always...
