  1. I would like to smoke a boneless turkey breast...has anyone tried one? I've done chicken pieces, whole chickens, & whole turkeys, but not boneless. What have your experiences been like?

    Thanks!!

    Love them. Only way to do white meat. Since it is just the wife and I, this is perfect for Thanksgivings. About 45 minutes a lb. Or go off the digital temps. Just spice it up and put some hickory wood on the fire and let it go.
     
  3. That works. Try any spice,

    I watch the temps. [​IMG]

    I still like to brine the breast for a few hours and inject it with butter garlic, onion and canjun spice ... mmmm hmmmm!

    I save the big containers from cheeseballs and use it for my poultry brines.

    I have never brined any of the turkey breast we have done. Just didn't seem to need it. Always moist and juicy. Could it be better brined, possibly. But if you marinaded it, why bother? I always worried about getting rid of the excess salt. I don't need any of that in my diet nowadays.
