    Well take it out of the bag so we can see it. It looks like just one side of the breast. If so I would brine it, smoke it skin side down with some bacon strips on the top to keep it moist. If you want you could also put your favorite rub on it.

    I can't tell what you have for sure but  since  it isn't a nice  roast style piece  I would  fillet it open and stuff it with something and tie it up and smoke it. Or brine it like Al said.

    Yep, looks like half a turkey breast...ditto what Al said, brine it (type in slaughterhouse brine in the search bar), put your fav rub on it overnight in the fridge, bacon wrap, stick a probe in it and smoke it.

    Definitely brine it.  a simple brine can be found on here somewhere.  i use soy, kosher salt and sugar.  it's simple but effective.  i've used it on drumsticks and fresh ham and it has done the trick.

    Brine it overnight, then rinse it and dust it with some rub, then smoke it for about 3-4 hours, should be perfect...don't forget the Q-View!
     
  7. i did one just like it before, but it was more like a turkey breast (tasted great), and i was hoping for pulled turkey

    This not being able to post w/ quote is getting REAL OLD, REAL FAST.

    You may not want to use the MES cabinet as a charcoal smoker. The cabinet is only designed to run at temps between 275° - 300°.  Maybe use it for cold smoking ,Cheese ,bacon etc.

    I was thinking about saying that same thing, but I wasn't sure enough about it.

    Now that Eman said it, I have to agree exactly.
