Holding a Breast......

Merry Christmas to ALL! Hey, I'm doing some more turkey breasts today for a 4 o'clock dinner, but they are gonna finish ahead of time, or at least I think they are.

What is the best way to hold one? Normally mine finish and are either eaten then or cooled and refrigerated for later, but this time we are shooting for a specific time. I think they may be done about an hour early.

I was trying them at 250 this time, which threw off my timing a bit bc they are just getting done faster than I thought they would that low.

Thanks and Merry Christmas to EVERYONE!!!!

    I just wrap mine in foil, then towels and stick in a tight fitting ice chest. I'm kept them hot and tender for 2 hours that way.

  • That's what I'll do then. I do that with pork butts but hadn't ever had to do it for a turkey. Wanted to make sure there wasn't some reason that I shouldn't do the breasts that way before I screwed up my family's dinner, lol.

    Thanks!! Merry Christmas!
