Smoked Turkey Breast

Getting her ready



In the smoker



All Done







Today was a day of firsts for me. The breast was very moist and broke apart nicely. The skin was just so so, but I knew that going into it. Was going to try a few things to crisp the skin then thought better of it. I wanted to make sure I had the smoke down before I changed things.

Looks really good. I hope the breast I do this week turns out looking that good.

Did you inject it, or just spritz with the apple juice? I'm planning on mixing some butter and creole seasoning and injecting it into the breast.

Very nice looking job! I bet the taste was fantastic. Did you brine first? I did my first two turkey breasts about a month ago. One I brined the other I did not. I thought they were both excellent but popular family opinion opted for the brined one.

To help with crisp skin I basted with a little seasoned garlic butter during the smoke. I also smoked at a higher temp than I would for say ribs or pork butt. I ran consistently around 300 to 325 temps. icon_smile.gif

That sounds really good.

RdKnB - Someone here on this forum recommended to me using cheesecloth dipped in butter, then placed about your Turkey to keep it from drying out. I haven't tried it yet but you will see it on my first Turkey breast qview. Great looking Turkey BTW.
