    More offset practice this weekend - put on a turkey breast:

    I slathered it on the skin and under it with a mix of honey, horseradish mustard, garlic salt, onion powder, paprika and Cholula. I also threw in some garlic and cheese sausages.

    More pics to come...

    Taste and tenderness:

    The tenderness was really on point. I doubt it would be considered competition tender, but for the average dinner it was spot on fantastic. No brining or marinating was done with this.

    Taste was also not one-bite bbq ready, but with a little bit of the pan juices and a dash of salt, this was really outstanding grub:

    Kind of aggravated with including the piece on the bottom...could have cropped it out, I guess. lol! You can also see the heavier fat underneath the skin on the top two pieces. I scraped that out as I ate it. Anyway, pretty happy with this effort. I tried a little different technique with the offset (more lump to start off with), and except for one spike, I thought it was a really smooth smoke.

    Thanks for reading and enjoy the day!!

    Great looking turkey.. Those are one of the hardest things to do right in my opinion. Looks like you have it under control.

    Beginners luck, I guess..it's my first effort with turkey. :)
    Thanks Al...it was a home run!
    You know, I was disappointed with the color of the sausage. I go back and forth about using a pan. I think I prefer to just pop the food on the grill. The pan sure does make clean up easier. Unfortunately, I didn't get a pic of the sausage.

    Thanks for the comment and the point!
    That all sounds great!  Going to make some soup with the bones and most of will go toward sandwiches for work!
    Thanks! The tater was pretty tasty too!
    Thanks a bunch!
    It really did..it wasn't one bite good, but it was great dinner and fantastic leftovers!
    Good luck and thanks for the [​IMG]


    Thanks again everyone!
