    Awesome, nice color ! Thumbs Up
     
  5. Did you brine or rub it at all?
     
  6. I didn't brine it, I usually do brine but this was a last minute decision and I only had time to dry rub and put in the fridge over night.

    Welcome , Perk. Good looking Breast , you shouldn't have a problem , good color.  I don't feel Brining is that important , with todays processing , they have enough coming from the processor. Fresh killed might need some. having said that , a log of your cooks might help you in deciding if you like a brined Bird or not. 

    Have fun and . . .

    I'm going to do my first turkey this weekend...question: do you use a water pan when smoking a turkey?

    That is some nice color. I did one and it turned black.

    I'm thinking of doing one this weekend.

    Can I get some additional details? Rub, wood etc.

    I'm smoking on a modified brinkmann ecb charcoal smoker.
