First smoke Turkey breast

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Seasoned my smoker this weekend. Had minimal to no smoke leaking.The Gasket and RTV Sealent worked great. Sunday evening I did my first smoke. I picked up 2 boneless turkey breast. About 3.5lbs a piece. Turned out awseome. I had to play around with the dampners for a bit to maintain the right temp. Overall I'm happy with how it worked.. And even happier how the turkey came out. I seasoned the breast with salt, pepper and a italian herb blend. Left them in the fridge overnight . While they were in the smoker. I sprayed them with a mix I did in a spray bottle. Mixed some bbq sauce and apple juice. Sprayed them every 30 min or so. Pulled them out at 160.

Very good , Elchicano , and congrats on your first... good feeling :biggrin: when things fall into place.


keep on going and try some other stuff like Chicken and a Chucky ,to get you a feel of the smoker, then go to town and cook everything :yahoo:


I have a suggestion that may help you in your journey into the world of smoke... start a log of your cooks , list all info. you care to (the more the better) and track yourself as you go. Odds are you will see a difference right away.:cool:


Have fun with your hobby , and as always . . .

Yes, it is my first smoke. I will add that I have been cooking for a long time. So, Im not that much of a rookie. I will say I was quite surprised myself how well it turned out. I Guess babysitting the smoker with a couple of beers paid off.

Looks good.  I am doing one this weekend.  I may brine it.  Not sure though.  It is a cryovac.  It may already be brined.
