Ready For The Grill

Rinse turkey breast in cold water and place in roaster. Make your Creole butter injection marinade and inject your turkey, place in oven bag. Add 2 cups chicken broth, ½ stick of butter, onion, celery, rubbed sage and garlic to the turkey cavity and place in the oven bag. Tie and refrigerated over night.

Next day-Take Turkey out of oven bag and place in a roaster pan. Throw away oven bag and marinade.

Apply some “Tongue Teaser” rub generously on turkey breast. Let sit for about 20-30 minutes to reach room temperature. This will give you time to prep your grill and reach your 250 degree mark.

Place Turkey on opposite side of your fire on your grill. This is called indirect smoking/grilling. Your fire is on one side and your meat is on the other. Adjust your dampers so that the smoke will come from your coals and wood chips and blow under & over your meat through your stack.

The total approximate time for cooking your turkey breast is five hours. This will vary depending on size of turkey breast and your fire temperature. Add your a hand full of your wood chips. I use a combination of Pecan, Cherry and Maple wood chips. This combination provides a sweet, nutty, light smoky flavor, perfect for turkey or chicken. After about an hour, add another hand full of wood chips to your coals. I sometimes soak the chips, however in this case it will only decrease the temperature of your grill. You goal is to be consistent with your temp!

After the second hour on the grill/smoker, place your turkey breast in an aluminum roasting pan and set back on your grill (opposite of your fire). Here it will remain in the pan for another three or so hours until the internal temperature is 165 degrees F. Add wood chips every hour or so.

Once the Turkey breast has reached the 165 degree F, remove from grill and let sit, loosely covered with foil for 20-30 minutes.
