Giving turkey pastrami a go!

After my complete failure last week with the brisket pastrami I am going to try turkey pastrami. It's a whole, bone in turkey breast. I cut the back out so it will lie flat. What I am wondering is after I take the breast out of the brine and season it should I take off the skin and leave it off or just season under the skin? Hoping not to create more shoe leather!!! ;;)

    The final product of turkey pastrami.  It turned out so good.  I am very happy especially after last weeks failure. I still followed the Charcuterie recipe except I used less salt and did a 48 hour brine.  I also ended up skinning the sucker so that I could get more flavor into the meat.  So the spices would stay on I rubbed the bird with a mixture of mayo and Honeycup mustard.  I wish we had a smell'em forum.  ;;)
