Cooking and Grilling With Andy
I do a lot of my own cooking and love it. I'm not too adventurous, and certainly not actually trained in "chefdom." I just love to play around and I've come up with some pretty fabulous dishes.....well.....that's what MY stomach and brain say. Ha! So, here is my latest creation!
This is such an easy dinner to make, but I added just a little twist. It's a smoked Turkey Breast.
You're saying so? Easy peasy! Yes and no. I've smoked a Turkey Breast before, on my Traeger Grill, but it was dry and thought I certainly can improve on this.
Your really need to brine the breast overnight, which I didn't do the first time. That will make it much more juicy after cooking. But, this time I bought a Butterball turkey breast. It's already brined so that is one less step. Here is what I did.
After a gentle rinse, I rubbed a very light coating of Mayonnaise all over to act as a binder for the rub. Then, I lightly coated the breast with my rub/seasoning of choice, tying it up just a bit to hold it together.
Next, I wrapped it in bacon! Oh, yeah! There is nothing that bacon won't make better!
I placed on a little rack with pan to catch drippings and placed in on the grill. It's indirect heat, with smoke, yum, so no problem. I had pre-heated the grill to 250 degrees. Of course I inserted my wireless Meater meat thermometer in the breast and connected it to the app on my phone. Close the lid and let it cook.
I let it get to about 155 degrees, about 2-hours or so, and removed it from the grill. I put foil over it to rest for about 15-minutes, and yuuuuumm!
This was absolutely the best smoked turkey breast I have every had.
Give it a try! I think you'll love it.
