Since we went to my sisters place yesterday, we had no leftovers. So, I snagged an 8lb turkey breast, brined it, applied Mickeys coffee rub, and cooked indirect at 350-375 for just over two hours. It reached 170 quicker than I expected, but I pulled it, loosely covered it with foil and let it rest for about 30 min.
I cut into it, said several creative curse words, danced around a bit and looked around for someone to high five. Possibly the best thing I've made ...ever.
Brining is unbelievably effective. I can't believe I've looked past something so easy for so long. The coffee rub is also ridiculously good. Tough to describe, but delicious.
Nolaegghead, thanks for your brine recipe. Mickey...whoever you are, your rub is bananas.
What a meal!
