Turkey breast with q view

Discussion in 'Poultry' started by paulmart, May 31, 2013.

  1. Brine for 5 hours
    1 gallon of water
    1.5 cups of kosher salt
    1/2 white sugar
    Dried sage

    Pat dry

    SPPOG (salt, pepper, paprika, onion, garlic)
    I found this in another thread, cant remember who posted it or where😳

    Napolean charcoal 3 in 1 smoker
    Mix of charcoal and maple set to 225
    Water pan, just water
    Turkey on lower grill.
    Handfull of applewood chips to start, then 1 handfull every 45 minutes.
    When temp dropped after 1.5 hours, i added a maple stick
    (1 inch think, 2 inch wide, 16 inch long)
    For canadians
    (25mm thick, 51mm wide, 408mm long..ish😜)
    Its a nice trick to have those on hand, talk to your local cabinet shop for offcuts..guess where i work!!
    When the internal temp hit 150, i wrapped in foil untill it hit 165.
    Removed from foil, placed in a baking dish and covered for a 20 minute rest
    When i pulled the cover off to begin slicing, the aroma was unreal!

    This is may first time smoking turkey. Easily the best I have ever had

    Im going to post pictures in the next post as my phone has crashed during the photo uploads..this is my third time typing this out😜
