Bradley-Big Easy Turkey Breast
« on: January 10, 2009, 04:22:21 pm »
Got a chance to break in my Big Easy today. Had about a five pound, bone-in turkey breast. Lightly oiled and used equal amounts of kosher salt, pepper, Old Bay Seasoning, and Oklahoma Joe's Hob Rub & Yard Bird seasoning.

After two hours smoke at 175f using apple/maple....


In the Big Easy...


I pulled the breast when the IT reached 150f, tented in foil.  Carryover took it to 160f...


Skin nice and crispy, good smokey flavor.... and JUICY!!!!!


All in all I'm very satisfied.  May cut the smoke down to 1 hour 40 minutes next time... Right now its time to eat!

Thanks folks....  I used the Big Easy with the cover on for about the first 30 minutes.  Took almost 1 hour in the BE.

Carolyn, I did indeed go to Spokane for Christmas.  Just in time to see about five feet of snow fall!  Needless to say, I didn't get out much.  It was quite beautiful and it was great to see family.

Cheers...

Thanks folks!  The leftovers made a great smoked turkey white chili.



On top of the spareribs this weekend I might just do a mess of drumsticks in the Bradley/Big Easy. Maybe wings but I think drumsticks are on sale at the local Safeway.

Beautiful nickld!  The Big Easy has become a permanent part of the cooking/smoking routine around here for the reasons you just showcased.
