Welcome back to Anderson’s SmokeShow! Today we are making a smoked turkey breast on my Masterbuilt Gravity Series 560! This smoked spatchcock turkey breast was smoked to perfection! Come Check it out!
It’s almost time for Thanksgiving and there is no better way to prepare for that Thanksgiving turkey than to smoke a few ahead of time! This recipe is easy to follow and covers all of the steps necessary to knock the socks off your guests!
I used my turkey brine recipe for this one. It consists of:
– 1/2 gallon unsalted chicken broth
– 1/4 cup salt
– 1/4 cup light brown sugar
– 1/2 tsp garlic powder
– 1/2 tsp black pepper
– 1/2 tsp parsley
– 1/2 tsp thyme
– top off with water if necessary
I placed the 7.5b turkey breast into a 2.5gal zippered freezer bag along with the brine and placed it in the refrigerator for 14-16hrs.
Removed from the brine and pat dried the turkey with paper towel. I then proceeded to spatchcock the turkey breast so that it would lay nice and flat on the charcoal smoker. See the video for details!!
I used olive oil as a binder and used the Spiceology Turkey Rub on both sides of the bird.
I made my own turkey injection and injected the breast. The turkey injection was perfect which consisted of:
– unsalted butter
– brown sugar
– garlic powder
– black pepper
– bbq rub
I placed turkey in my Masterbuilt Gravity Smoker at 285F. You want the turkey breast to reach 165F no less and not much higher either. My 7.5lb turkey breast took about 3 hours and produced an EXTREMELY juicy turkey!
When the turkey breast reached 155F I used some of my homemade bourbon honey glaze and basted it all over the surface of that turkey breast. This turkey glaze added a 5th dimension to this turkey and boy was it DELICIOUS! Here is my recipe:
I used a 4:1 ratio of honey:bourbon
– 6 tablespoons honey
– 1.5 tablespoons bourbon
– 1 teaspoon cajun seasoning
I am being 100% honest when I say that this is one of the best smoked turkey that I have ever had! This is a juicy and flavorful how to recipe for all of you bbq smoked turkey fans! This smoked spatchcock turkey breast recipe will not let you down!
