Turkey test run

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I am going to smoke my first turkey tomorrow in preparation for Thanksgiving. Any recommendation on a rub that isn't full of chili powder or cumin? Maybe something a little more traditional for thanksgiving.

I have a 6 pound bone in turkey breast that came in a 15% solution.

Thanks.

You can always use Salt pepper and garlic along with some poultry seasoning as your rub

Keeping it simple is the best. SPOG really is all you need. (Salt Pepper Onion Garlic).

I end up going simple with a little bit if poultry seasoning and paprika added to it. I have had the breast in for about 1.5 hours at 300 degrees with some peach wood. I think it will be done in less than an hour from now.

End result was pretty good. Sorry I didn't get any photos.

The combination of the rub and peach wood was unique and tasty. The turkey was enhanced so I didn't brine, but it was flavorful.

I am not sure if I would change anything for thanksgiving other than make a bigger turkey.

Good job! If you like it, your guests will like it even more.

Thanks. I was happy to see my smoker was able to reach its max temp of 300 degrees in mid 30 degree windy weather today.

I have never had a smoker that you could use in lower than 60 degrees.
