Thanks Ernie. I did mention it but it was at the bottom of the pics & easy to miss. No brine for this turkey - it was done on short notice so no time to brine... A brine is great if you have time for one but isn't absolutely necessary if you take your time & don't vaporize all the water out of the meat  thumb1.gif

So there you have it. My latest wild turkey done on short notice - no brine, no bacon & just a bare minimum of spice. Flavor was excellent & all parts of the bird were tender & moist - this was a great eating game bird  :icon_mrgreen: 

 

Good luck to all the turkey hunters out there!  :beercheer:

A bit of a bump here....

I've just come into some wild turkey breast and I've been reading through lots of posts about ideas. Everybody but you has basically deemed it necessary for a brine at minimum and really even a bacon weave to get a good moisture content in the finished product. You did neither of these and the turkey looks awesome.

Am I missing something besides low heat and good temperature management? Did you pull it shy of 165 and let it carry over?
