Do not use very much salt AT all! Will completely ruin it!

Another one of Rance Gamblins creations.

 

Spicy Smoked Wild Turkey Breast

Marinade ingredients
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
3 tablespoons lemon juice
several shakes of Tabasco
1/2 teaspoon of cajun seasoning
1/2 teaspoon of coarse ground black pepper
 
Take boneless, skinless turkey breast and tenderize lightly with a meat hammer or a press tenderizer.  Marinate in a ziplock bag or other container for at least 4 hours (overnight is even better).
 
Place the breast on a cutting board and lightly cover with dry barbecue rub.  Wrap with thick cut bacon and secure with toothpicks.
 
Place in smoker preheated to 220F.  I like to use Mojo brand marinade in the water pan, diluted with water, but you may find something you like better.

 Smoke until internal temperature reaches 165F (app 4.5 hours for a typical sized turkey breast).

Slice and serve with BBQ sauce for dipping (you may find it doesn't need any dipping sauce!!) Enjoy.

I'm pretty new at this smoking game, so when my 10-year-old boy got his first turkey the other day and said he wanted to smoke it, I went looking for help.  The turkey breast had sat in the fridge with a rub on it for 2 days per the advice of a friend.  Then when I came across this idea I decided to try it.  2 hrs 15 min at 275 on the Traeger with a pan of water under the grate and bacon draped over the breast.  Wasn't quite done when I took it off so I put it in the oven at 275 for another 10 minutes, cut open so the heat could get inside.  All I can say is, I can hardly keep my kids' hands off it, it's so good.  Thanks for the idea!  I can't wait to get more birds and keep smokin'.

What was the temp & time you cooked it at? I'm aiming for an internal probe temp of 160 ish before I pull it out..I've had it in the brine since last night and need to be able to estimate its cooke time to be done with  a Pork shoulder I'll be smoking a few hours before I throw the Wild turkey breast in.
