    OK - bought a fresh turkey breast from local store as it was "day of meat" i.e. 50% off. This happened during my work lunch and left in the work frig today.

    Called the boss tonight - I'm going to get the breast tonight from work (7:00pm) and will take the later 1/2 day off tomorrow to smoke.

    Now - need a game plan between tonight and while I'm at work until noon (EST). This turkey breast says 100% organic, fresh, etc.

    I'm thinking of a quick 4 hour brine tonight and smoking it on the beer bottom stand tomorrow. Naturally coated the bird in seasonings and oil.

    Any other basic ideas for tonight or tomorrow? Never done a 'fresh' breast or bird. Worried about the 'dryness'...

    Your thoughts?

    Welp - made brine with your basic vegs that was sauteed and let her soak for 6 hours.

    Took 1/2 a day off of work - 78°F today and put the breast on at 1:20pm. by 4-ish she was done (158°F) and let her rest for 30+ minutes.

    What good is it, talk'n about it, without showing some pics?....?...
