Thread Starter 
Although this recipe is for roasting a turkey I think it will be great smoked. Might just have to give this a try this weekend!


Roast Turkey Breast with Chipotle-Herb Rub Recipe

This recipe serves 8
Preparation time 15 minutes
Cooking time 2 hours

Ingredients
2 chipotle peppers, rehydrated, stemmed and seeded
1/4 cup fresh parsley
1/4 cup fresh cilantro
3 to 4 sprigs fresh thyme
6 cloves garlic, peeled
2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 whole, fresh turkey breast, about 4 to 6 pounds

Cooking Instructions
1. Preheat the oven to 325°F. Rinse the turkey breast under cold running water and pat it dry with paper towels. Place it in a baking dish and set it aside.
2. Combine the chipotle pepper, herbs, garlic, salt and pepper in a mortar and pestle or chop them on a cutting board until they form a paste. Add the olive oil to the mortar and pestle or transfer the mixture to a small bowl and add the olive oil.
3. Rub the turkey breast with the chipotle paste. Carefully slip your fingers under the skin and put more paste between the skin and the meat.
4. Roast the turkey breast in the oven for about 2 hours. Let the turkey rest at room temperature for about 15 minutes before carving.
