    We found a sale on some turkey breast a couple of days ago. (.99 cents a pound) So we picked up six of them. Now, turkey is just about my favorite food, but I have never smoked any before, so I had to try it.

    I decided to try a store bought rub because I didn't feel like making one myself. I ended up getting two different ones to try.

    This one is a little heavy on the sage when you smell it in the bottle, but came out tasting really good once it was done:

    And this one (although I don't care for their BBQ) came out tasting really very good. It's more a a Paprica based rub with a lot of different spices in it.

    Ok, here we are at about 3 1/2 hours smoking. Can't tell them apart even though the rubs are completely different looking.

    This was the first one off the smoker at 170 degrees:

    And here is what it looked like after a couple of slices. It was tender and juicey and very flavorful. I was totally satisfied with how they came out. I WILL be smoking some again.

    Smoked at about 300 degrees for 6 1/2 hrs with a mix of hickory and apple.

    Man oh Man you did a great job on those turkey beast. You most like your turkey if you have 6 of those things. Now it sounds like you might start making your own rubs thou.
