Butterball Boneless Turkey Breast Roast
« on: December 20, 2010, 11:41:04 AM »
I finished my first turkey smoke.  I used a Butterball Boneless Turkey Breast Roast and covered it with some Famous Dave’s Chicken rub spices.  I followed the package directions by lifting the net away from the meat before putting it in the smoker and it came off easy when done.  Here is what it looked like out of the smoker.  The thicker dark band on top is the skin that came on the roast.

Here is a shot of the sliced product.

Very good flavor and worth doing again.

Nice looking roast there dubob.  I have read Butterball turkeys are pre-brined.  Was that true with this breast, and how was the moistness, what cab temp did you use, and what was your finish IT ?

Nice!   I love doing those little boulder birds..   Sometimes I'll chill one for a day after smoking, and slice real thin for sandwich meat.

The breast did have a slight saltiness to it.  Smoked for 2 hours at 200 and then bumped to 250 until IT was at 170.  Took about 6 hours total.

How big was that one?  I'm going to try a 12lbs boneless bird this weekend.

That is the only way I do them now.


Looking good.

I love the baby boulders!,
i like to take them out of the netting, do a light rub with the chicken rub, wrap them in a layer of cheese cloth and spritz them with
apple juice. make sure to keep them lightly moistened or it will stick.
smoke them to 165 pull and wrap for an hour.
