    I set out to smoke beef ribs but both local Safeway 's and our Albertsons had none. What a friggen travesty! So there I was at the meat section and I had to improvise. Since I have not done a turkey in quite a while I went in that direction. I have been trying to think out of the box lately... Not sure why... I turned to my left and was looking down the Asian food isle. That's when it hit me... Kung Pao Chicken Stuffed turkey. I wasn't sure it would turn out but thought why the hell not.

    The end result was amazing. It's now a favorite with my family. I was able to stuff 1/2 pounds of Kung Pao chicken in each Turkey breast. I mopped the inside cavities with a rub, butter and teriyaki sauce. The same sauce I later injected the breast meat with prior to smoking. once stuffed I applied some Jack's old south hickory rub and brown sugar to the outer surface. Then it was a nice smoke low and slow 230 degrees. The last 30 minutes I turned the hest up to 350. I'm really enjoying this Treager Texas Elite!

    This might sound weird to some but it's well worth a try or should I say worth a smoke. Hope you sall enjoy...

    Here is the step by step video.

    That looks great, I'm just getting started in the world of smoking foods, and after reading a lot of the posts on smf, it amazes me how much food ideas people have, I see myself having to buy bigger pants in my future.

    Sorry if some of you had issues viewing the video. I found a scene I had in it twice and my perfectionist (I try) side took over and I wouldn't sleep this evening if I didn't fix it.

    The new video is up and I edited this thread to reflect the correct URL.

    Sorry about that.
