Smoked Wild Turkey Breast
« on: May 29, 2018, 12:17:04 PM »
Picked from a few different recipes I found online to come up with this. Ended up by far the best wild turkey I have cooked up. Enjoy. Oh I ended up raising the cook temp to 225 degrees when the meat temp reached 140 to speed it up as it was taking a bit longer than expected.


SMOKED WILD TURKEY BREAST
WRAPPED IN BACON


BRINE
1.   2 QUARTS WATER
2.   ½ CUP KOSHER SALT
3.   ½ CUP BROWN SUGAR
4.   2 TB GARLIC POWDER
5.   2 TB ONION POWDER
6.   ¼ CUP APPLE CIDER VINEGAR

DRY RUB  (ADJUST TO TASTE)
1.   3 TB COARSE BLACK PEPPER
2.   1 TS CAYENNE (OR CHIPOTLE)
3.   1 TB GARLIC POWDER
4.   1 TS CUMIN
5.   1 TS SMOKED PAPRIKA


CLEAN AND PLACE TURKEY BREAST IN BRINE AND SOAK FOR 24 HOURS. REMOVE FROM BRINE AND RUB WITH DRY RUB. WRAP WITH BACON AND SMOKE (with water pan)  ON 200 DEGREES UNTIL THE BREAST REACHES AN INTERNAL TEMP OF 155 TO 160. REMOVE FROM SMOKER AND LOOSELY COVER WITH FOIL FOR 15 TO 30 MIN. SLICE AND DIG IN!!!
