    I'm going to try posting on this forum.

     Hey All

    I was watching Diners, Drive-ins and Dives the other day on Food Network, the KC BBQ edition.   They were at Smokin Guns BBQ in KC, and his food looked great.  But something that caught my eye as something I wanted to try was his turkey.

    Here is the youtube clip:

    Just after the 4 minute mark, he goes into showing his turkey.  He says it's partly frozen, he rubs it, and then smokes it.  When he cuts it, it appears boneless.

    Anyone know what kind of cut that is? I mean, it's obviously turkey breast, but it's a huge boneless turkey breast.  The boneless turkey breasts I find are the butterball and they are small.

    I would love to smoke that up.  Any thoughts?

    Those turkeys are  Boneless 3-4 Lobe Breast Roasts that are sold through Restaurant Wholesale Distributors. They average 12-14 lbs and come 4 to a case. Try looking for Restaurant supply companies that offer Retail Walk-in Service. Some Sysco and US Foods distributors allow walk-ins and break cases...But the USDA and I would not recommend smoking Partially Frozen Meats of any kind!...JJ
