Question on doing a wild turkey breast?

Hey all. I am curious as to what you folks might do with a wild turkey breast for smoking? What kind of wood to use? Should one brine it first and what brine mix? The breasts are skinless so should a person maybe wrap some bacon aroud them to help keep them juicy? Just looking if anyone has expierence doing something similiar to this. Thanks for any advice.

    I used apples and bacon and apple wood when I smoked the last one. Did another with a pepper crust and grilled. Both were big hits.



  • I like cutting the breast in 1 or 2 bite pieces and wrapping with bacon, banana pepper, and cream cheese. I season with lemon pepper and Tony Chachere's creole seasoning!!! Time consuming but we'll worth it!!!
  • Thanks all. Well I was given these 2 whole turkey breasts and also a complete young turkey by a friend. He will give me one and wants me to smoke the other two. So I want to do a good job for him.
