Saturday afternoon cook...turkey breast

Started with a 5.5lbs. bone in turkey breast, that I brined overnight for 15hrs. Then drained the brine and places it on a rack in the fridge for 4hrs. The egg was stabilized at 350F dome temp. It took 2hrs +\- to reach 160F internal temp. It was awesome!!

    Looks super juicy. Did you rinse the brine off before drying in the fridge? What brine recipe did you use please?

    @caliking, I did not rinse off the brine before placing it in the fridge. I used Turkey Bath Brine 32 FL OZ's(Classic Holiday with Apple, Rosemary, and Sage) it is made in Austin,TX. , I purchased it from the whole foods on Bellaire. The brine says it's concentrate and can be mixed with a gallon of water. I did not mix any extra liquids with the brine, I just poured right on the turkey.
  • Looks great. I'm getting ready to do a test turkey before thanksgiving and Reading discussions like this is really helping me prepare. Thanks guys!

    Cherry wood for smoke or no added wood? Color looks great!

    @rleeper, I used pecan for the flavor and smoke.

    @hoov, I just added kosher salt, pepper, garlic power. The brine gave it amazing flavor.
  • 350 indirect or raised direct?
