I am a relative newbie to the BGE (Large). Going on 2 months now of EGGing and loving it! Have done numerous Butts, Pork Loins, Hams, Ribs, Tri Tips and Chickens so far, all with great sucess. Having said that, I received a special request this past weekend from SWMBO, for a Smoked Turkey Breast. Had not done of those on the BGE yet, so read all I could on this forum and went with this: 300 - 325, Indirect, apple juice in a disposable aluminum water pan and apple chunks for smoke. On the Breast, which was 8.5 lbs, did a 24 hour brine of apple juice, maple syrup, kosher salt and brown sugar, then rinsed, dried and rubbed with a "Simon and Garfunkel" Rub(Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme) about 2 hours prio to cooking.
I anticipated about 30 minutes per pound, so about a 4 hour cook was what I expected. In the middle of the yard work the Maverick starts beeping at the 2 hour mark! I was surprised and also concerned that SWMBO was not back from the store with the rest of the turkey fixins yet. Had no choiced but to FTC it for a couple hours. I have to say, it was pretty awesome and SWMBO loved it(always good to keep SWMBO happy!!).
I am no expert on this forum yet, but I have learned enough to know that "No pics = no proof". But, I am still wrestling with posting pics, so if this sucks, I promise to study harder for next time. Here's a couple pics(I hope!):
