Smoked Turkey Breast

It’s that time of year when everyone is starting to plan out your Thanksgiving menus.  Well look no further I will have you covered in the turkey department!  This past year we got a wood pellet grill or smoker as most people call them. It is the best thing that has happened to our dinner table!   It cooks the juiciest chicken, steaks, kabobs and even pizza….yes I said pizza!  I loved this smoker from day one and we use it all the time.  A few weeks back I thought lets smoke a turkey breast…and it was AMAZING!!  And I have basically been craving to make another I did!

I took step by step pictures this time so it will be easy for everyone to make their own Smoked Turkey Breast!!

Apple Brine Juice for turkeys

I will admit I am new to the entire brining your turkey.   I don’t think my parents ever did when I was younger so I never really knew much about it.   What I have been missing out on!!   I have brined several turkeys lately and they are seriously more flavorful and the juiciest turkey you will ever have.  I have decide that my favorite brine so far is the Apple Brine.
