Default Really cold breasts. I am a believer!!

I am just tired of having the thighs done properly on the turkey and the breast is overcooked so I finally listened to advice and iced the breast for 30 minutes before smoking. Of course, I did a 24 hour brine beforehand as well. Throughout the entire cook, the breast was 10 degrees cooler than the thigh. Perfect!!

For the rub, I used Harry Soo's secret ingredient..... Tang! High sugar content, orange flavor. It came out great. The sugar caramelized beautifully and it had a hint of orange flavor...

Sorry, no pics. Too many people......
