Turkey Pastrami

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I decided to experiment with making pastrami from turkey instead of beef.  I found that I prefer the turkey. 

This half of a turkey breast.



3 cups of water

2 tablespoons of salt

1/2 of cure #1

2 tablespoons of brown sugar

1 tablespoon of pickling spice

I drained and dried the turkey breast with paper towels

I rubbed it generously with EVVO and applied grounded pastrami rub.

I put it in the smoker and smoked at 205 degrees for 2 hours.  I did place a bowl of water in with.

The pink color is from the cure #1.  Turkey was very moist and tender.
