Bacon Wrapped Turkey Breast w/Stuffing

Discussion in 'Poultry' started by magnoliasmoker, Aug 16, 2013.

  1. This one took a good deal of prep, and I really needed another set of hands. I got the recipe out of a book of mine if anyone wants the particulars. It's basically a butterflied turkey breast, beaten out with a tenderizer hammer. Stuffing of your choice put in the middle, then roll it all up (kind of like a fatty). After that comes the fun part of wrapping/lacing the bacon around it, then tying it all together with butchers twine. Cooked over indirect heat for about 2 hours with hickory smoke (don't recall the IT when I pulled it). All I remember is it was TASTY!!!

    after looking at the pic again you might have done a weave, sorry... maybe the ties is to hold the breast together?

    :) bad eyes today :p 
     
  4. Definitely wish I had been a member of this forum when I wrapped it, nice tutorial I'll definitely save it. It was somewhat similar of a weave, the recipe called for butchers twine and it was handy to keep it all together because I had to flip the bird once.

    Well, once you have the weave layed out and wrap what ever it is you are wrapping with the bacon.. usually it will hold it together itself. If not a few picks like i said... easier.. faster... and looks great. :) give it a whirl. after your first weave, youll be a pro and your friends will be asking for your help with them all the time ::)))) Usually one pack will cover a fattie size portion. :)
