2nd smoke ever

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Hello all, I am new here (already been to roll call) and have already cooked one 8lb turkey breast. It turned out great, that was on saturday. The temperature outside really jump in the past couple days, so I thought I would experiment with the new smoker and see what would happen since it was 30* warmer outside today than Saturday....here are the results. 8lb turkey breast (again), over apple wood chunks (again), in my Brinkmann Gourmet Electric Smoker. This was a bird in solution, so I didn't brine. Put some rub on, and put her in the smoker for a little over 4 hours. It took 6 1/2 hours on Saturday with a temp at 20* outside.

Bird on the grill with rub on it



Smoking (hey is this a proper amount of smoke, should I have more or less???)



4 hours later





What was left of her when we were done



How's that for my 2nd smoke??? All we keep saying is that this has been the best turkey we have ever eaten, and that we would be disappointed going anywhere else for a turkey dinner, if they weren't smoking it.

This is me protecting my leftovers!!!PDT_Armataz_01_41.gifPDT_Armataz_01_40.gif

Looks pretty yummy! I've only done one bird so far and it turned out pretty good. The flavor was good, but a slight dry. I'll do better next time.

This was in 15% solution, so I read not to brine, but I do like Walking Dude's idea about a soak in freshwater to get their solution out and put my own in.....even still, it was the juiciest bird we have ever had.

I think next time I am going to find a bird that isn't in solution and give her a bath that includes some veggies and maybe some apple juice.

Walking Dude, what can I cash those points in for around here?

wing.....the bird i had GIVEN to us for turkey day, had that same amount of solution..........so...........sometimes its a bit difficult to find one minimally enhanced...........so if it does........don't be worried.......just do as i suggested..............

Don't eat the dark meat, no since in buying the bird with more than just breasts. Besides, who wouldn't like breasts like these??? PDT_Armataz_01_22.gif
