    Hey y’all! Got my first turkey this year and I wanted to smoke/grill a breast portion. Tom had a lot to give with 1 side being enough for the wife and I to share. I’ll be using a Weber kettle with lump charcoal. Any suggestions concerning preparation, seasoning, and cooking methods would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Brine the turkey for about an hour per pound, usually a minimum of 8 but a max of 24 hours, in a brine composed of a cup each of salt, pepper, garlic and onion powders, a large bottle of Worcestershire or soy sauce, and enough ice and chicken broth to fill the rest out. Keep it cold but not frozen. Remove from the brine, rinse off and cook as preferred (deep fat frying for me, but you do you).

    Brine it for 18-24 hours. I use salt, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, garlic and a little thyme.

    Rinse off the brine. Pat it dry. Coat it liberally with freshly cracked black pepper. Smoke it for 2-3 hours at 225 using apple or pecan wood.

    I tried this for the first time three years ago – I never do anything different with the breasts anymore.

    Yes definitely brine.
