Default Turkey Enhancements

My mom gave me a turkey breast and a whole turkey to store in my freezer for her, now she wants me to smoke them. The breast is enhanced with 13% solution and the whole turkey is enhanced with 8% solution. Should I still brine these or just rub and throw on the drum?

Thanks, Craig

You can brine it but just cut back on the salt. The solution will have plenty of salt already in it.

I did a turkey breast to take for sammich meat on our vacation and it too was enhanced. I did a roast too so while the roast was smoking a loosened up the skin on the turkey breast until I could get spices on every part of it. I mixed some salt, pepper, thyme and sage together and rubbed that all under the skin. Then I pulled the skin back down to the edges and put a few toothpicks in it to hold it.


When the roast came off and the egg got steady at 325 I put the bird on the grill and rubbed Duke's mayonnaise all over the skin then closed the lid and let it cook. It came out a beautiful golden brown with crispy skin and when I brought it inside it made the whole house smell like Thanksgiving. The meat was very moist throughout. I have pictures somewhere that I'll try to find and post.
