  1. Thanksgiving turkey recap:  It was tasty/delicious, didn’t bother with gravy based on the QA taste test :)

    Being single & celebrating by myself, I opted for a turkey breast (which is less than a full bird).  Started this on Monday, when I let the thing soak in a bath of orange juice mixed with sugar, salt, & spices.  Yesterday, fired up the propane meat smoker, used cherry wood chips, let it sit for four hours inside.  (Also had some chicken thighs along for extra meat to enjoy later.)  Only mistake, didn’t fully dump all the OJ bath out, so it was still in the cavity at hour three, dumped that then … so at that exact spot, it was a tad under cooked despite the rest being well-done (I’ll get it with the microwave on leftovers).

    All in all, quite pleased with how it turned out.  Quite moist, tender, and bursting in flavor with every bite, hence the decision to skip the hassle over gravy.  Carcass is now in the freezer, I’ll take it out once I’m inthe mood for turkey soup.

      Turkey breast would’ve fed a small family’s feast w/o an issue, and way less effort than a full bird :fthrower:

      But I like the whole bird… :D

      Actually, for a family dinner, a turkey breast is fine. It’s just not quite Thanksgiving for me.

      A whole bird would be nice, gotta admit, but then I’m one mouth, and that’d be a month of leftover turkey...gets old after awhile.  So, considering all angles, made the right choice IMO.  (Of course, having family living closer to go and join, that’d be even better, TBH.)
