1st Turkey

Used a boneless Turkey breast and used some homemade rub on it. Basted with a sweet glaze and smoked with a little Pecan chips at 350. Was done in about 1 1/2 hours. Was fork tender and juicy. A bit on the salty side but not bad.

I used 1/2 the salt the rub recipe called for. Next time I'll try 1/4. Why are the majority of the rubs so very salty? Thanks

    Looks good.  I love pecan smoked turkey.  Nothing like pecan for that rich brown coloring.

  • Looks great! The saltiness may be due to the choice of a boneless breast. The way some of those are processed they can contain sodium and be salty before the rub.
