I brine my turkey with salt, brown sugar and pickling spice and love the taste.

Would it be possible to take some ground turkey, stuff it in a salami casing, brine it, smoke it and have it turn out?

This way I can run it through the meat slicer and have the same sort of meat that they have in the deli except it will taste better.

Not sure but it sounds like a good idea. I may just have to try this and see what I run into

What about just thin slicing the turkey that you have smoked?

Ok so here is what I did.

I bought some ground turkey from the store

Mixed in some extra pork fat to hold it together.

Added some cheese because I just got in my order of high temp cheese.

Placed it in a casing and now it is sitting in brine.

I am going to smoke it tomorrow and slice it up

I will let you know how it turns out

Well it came out of the smoker and has cooled down.

The texture was acceptable.

The flavor was gross, If I ever decide to do this again I will have to mix some flavor with the meat.

Yâ€[emoji]8482[/emoji]now Cheech, Itâ€[emoji]8482[/emoji]s like hot dogs, beef, pork, chicken or turkey, they all basically taste the same, its all in the seasoning, I guess, however I would lose the cheese and save it for snack stix! :roll:

Up in smoke,

It is like this, I ordered the cheese and it came in the mail and this is the first thing that I had that I could stuff the cheese into.

The cheese was not the problem with the taste but it really did not go with it either
