    Another cold day in Florida. Picked up a 12 lb. bone in turkey breast a few days ago. Thawed it out in the fridge. Spatchcocked it. Cut up some celery, carrots, garlic, & onions. 


    Put some homemade bacon in the oven for the sammies.


    Put the veggies in an aluminum pan with some turkey stock, and sprinkled with Montreal chicken seasoning.

    Then into the oven for about 1/2 hour.


    Next put butter & garlic under the skin.


    Then inject with turkey stock & butter.


     Dust with Montreal.


    Into the smoker. The old trusty Smoke Vault, with red oak.


    She's running at about 225, with nice smoke.


    Pulled the turkey out at 158 IT. Let it rest for about 1/2 hour.


    Carved it up & put the carcass in a stock pot with all the stuff in the pan, for some more turkey stock.



    Now for the sammie. Started with just baked buns.


    Spread on some mayo, a little lettuce, a slice of tomato, bacon, & turkey.


    Here it is. All done.


    Add a few homemade dill pickles & it's lunch time.


    Thanks for looking!

    Hope I made you hungry!  [​IMG]

    That is some delicious looking turkey!     I'm really impressed that you can make your buns at home.     Any sandwich is better with bacon but with home made bacon and home made buns that has got to be one delicious sandwich.

      Thank-you, Like I said above Judy my wife is the baker and she made the buns, so I can't really take credit for that. But your right everything is better when it's homemade.

    Thanks for the bump! That's one heck of a cook and very detailed! Thanks for sharing and well worth a point.
    I usually smoke turkey breasts once a month. I have been brining mine but might just try injecting. Do you any special kind of butter?

    Thank-you & thanks for the point!

    No just salted melted butter, then let it cool to room temp & inject just before putting it in the smoker.

    If your in a hurry & don't want to heat it up you can use Parkay.

    Can't really tell the difference in taste between either one.
