Well after seeing Bearcarver Bearcarver post his turkey roast I knew one of the two in the freezer where gonna get done soon. So no time like the present I always say.

This time I am trying a new rub and no bacon so we will see how it goes.

Again on the Rec Tec @225-240 for 5-6 hours and spray with apple juice to keep the outside moist. And using Competition blend Lumber Jack pellets

The new Rub was a gift and looks homemade. It is call Coppers BBQ Dry Rub:
1/4 cup dark chili powder
1/4 cup smoked paprika
1/4 cup ground cumin
1/4 granulated garlic
1/8 cup coarse ground pepper
1/8 kosher salt
1/4 brown sugar
Pinch of cayenne pepper

Added some rosemary to the top side per the bosses request.

Okay, 1 1/2 hrs in...and started spraying it with apple juice

now an hour later we are at IT of 144 degrees.

Pulled it at 160 degree IT and plated it.

Here is the money shot!

You can't see the smoke ring but it is 1/4 inch all the way around. This was an all white meat roast (Sue does not like dark meat) and was very tender and tasty.

Thanks for lookin'

Stay Home and Stay Safe Everyone. :emoji_thumbsup:

Fresh sauteed potato and onions, and a frozen vegetable medley consisting of: broccoli, green beans, carrots, red peppers, wax beans, and yellow peppers....we are out of fresh so we are now into the frozen stuff.

Yea, front coming in tomorrow, with a 14 degree drop by friday. That's OK I need to wash and wax the RV and boat so the cooler temps are a god send.

Speaking of cooler temps got a turkey kielbasa chili queued up for Friday. :emoji_laughing:

Well John, the IT on my TT is at 133. So, I am out. I'll swing back in later to see the final results on your turkey roast.
I'm betting it will be delicious.

Well gee whiz, I guess there will be some money shots in the morning. It was a beautiful day in Gilbert, first time this year I wore shorts all day. In another week we'll really start heating up. RAY
