    turkey  is not so popular here  it apears in the stores for christmas and only as a whole turkey .

    i got from a butcher turkey breast and decided to smoke it as pastrami.

    first i brine it with 1 cup of sugar 1 cup of salt, cumin, hot pepper, black pepper and garlic in 1 gallon of water

    This morning after 14 hours  i  removed them from the brine, dry the turkey and prepare it for smoking . i use the same rub

    black pepper, coriander ,garlic powder.but the basis is 3 different way .

    one (The small)with evoo

    the second with mustard

    and one with Silan (date honey).

    all of them i wrapped in a net before rubing it

    i use this systems for pancetta and fatties.

  17. Looks delish. Had deli turkey sandwich last nite. No comparison to that stuff I'm sure Ahron. Does it have a pastrami flavor? I notice you didn't use any kind of cure.
