    I know turkey is no big woop but I had to show off the color of this bird.

    Got a turkey half breast and removed the skin and cut it off the bone. IMO it makes for better slicing since I can cut across the grain.

    Injected with a mix of lawry's and EVOO then rubbed the outside with the same.

    Got the MES going at 230 and a row of pecan in the AMNPS burning at both ends for ultimate smokey goodness.

    IT hit 165 and I had myself a gorgeous mahogany bird. The skin was removed prior to smoking so this is the turkey meat showing off a new smoke tattoo. I love this color. Reminds me of the hams I do.

    After a cool down it was time to slice. It even has a itty, bitty, baby smoke ring which is cool for me considering my smoker is electric and I rarely see one.

    There's some smokey sammies in my future!

    Thanks everyone. The EVOO injections seem to keep it super moist.
     
    I liked the color so much I almost didn't slice it. Just wanted to look at it.
