Smoking some Chicken and Turkey (Q-View)

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 

Today I am smoking up some Chicken Breasts to make pulled chicken.  We like to do this and freeze some of the pulled chicken to use in some recipes.  I am also doing a turkey breast that I will slice to use in place of store bought deli meat.

 

I did not brine either of these meats, I chose to inject a mixture of chicken stock, Pickapeppa Sauce, and some apple cider vinegar.

 

I used my BBQ rub #7, (a low sodium rub creation) on the chicken and I used my turkey rub (Penzy's poultry seasoning, garlic, onion powder, paprika)  for the Turkey Breast.

 

I also take the back bone and neck from the turkey and smoke those as well.  I save these over time, once I have a bunch I through them in a stock pot with water, bay leaf, 1/4 cup vinegar, and simmer on low for 2 days.  It creates a great stock for soups, or to cook pasta and rice with.  The flavor profile that it adds to pasta is wonderful.

 

Today I am using the stick burner with Apple, Peach, and a bit of Pecan.

 

More pics to come!

 

Smoke ON!

Chicken is done.  Ready to pull and sauce up.

Turkey is done and resting in a nice blanket.

 

For the Sauce, I used my own Honey Pecan Sauce mixed with some of the liquid from the cook.

 

It turned out really good and the bonus is it is pretty darn healthy.

 

 

 

 

 

Thanks for looking!

Thanks Gary.

I assume the sauce you are talking about is the Pickapeppa. Yes it is a unique sauce that brings some great flavor to poultry.  I have also made a glaze with it in the past.

I sure think it does, it adds a great depth of flavor.

Tough stuff to find though.... I used to get it back in Wisconsin, but finally found a grocery store down here that carries it.

The Turkey turned out great.  It is now sliced, packaged, and ready for sandwiches.  

 

 

Here is a sandwich from the Pulled Chicken, you can't really see the slaw...sorry, I am better at BBQ then I am at photography!

 

Thanks for looking!
