Default Thanksgiving Dress Rehearsal (Boob--er pRon)

Decided the other day to cook a turkey since we had one in the freezer and so I can practice ahead of Thanksgiving.

Brined in the Turkey 101 brine recipe for about 40 hours. Then injected with 2 TBS of butter melted, then mixed with 1/2 C of chicken broth, splash of lemon juice, 1 tsp garlic powder, 1 tsp onion powder, 1/2 tsp of sea salt.



Put on when the fire got right and temp was about 300. Placed bacon over the breast to slow it down a bit and keep it from getting too dry.

Cruising along for about 3 hours now. IT is 127. More boobies to follow.

There was a discussion earlier today from somebody saying bacon doesn't help keep the meat moist. While I mostly agree with that, this does help here. I've done several birds like this and it shields the breast from the heat while you get the legs/thighs up to temp.

And it's bacon. So how can you go wrong with bacon?

More pron of the finished product soon.

I think I had a premonition about this. I wish you had wrapped the whole thing in bacon and then I'd know there was something magical about this day.

In any case I'm looking forward to the results and I want to know if those breasts taste like bacon.

Went into the foil about 130 degree IT. Bacon was pulled off the breast at 155. In hindsight, I'd like a little more color to the skin and would probably pull the bacon at 145 next time.



And we're done!


Some of the drippings to make a gravy. No Thanksgiving is complete without some gravy.



Nice juicy breast meat. Lots of moisture still in there. Took the turkey off the smoker with the IT at 175.



Finished product and ready to eat!

Bro, while it looks good and all, and I'm sure many will criticize me, combining foul and pork raw like that is not a good idea. I know Chef Ramsay and Irvine would go Ballistic!

While you're absolutely correct if you're consuming all of it, that didn't happen NW.

Should have mentioned that I discarded the bacon and in now way would it be safe to eat...however, the dog thought it was delish!

Then if you get the IT, or in this case, the external temp, cross contamination isn't going to happen.

But it's a great reminder.

No it did not taste like bacon. Sorta like a turkey-ish bacon.

Actually, the bacon was on the skin only, so it was more of a shield/baster. It tasted like turkey.

Someone is a skilled bacon weaver. In the dailymeal version, I think I would have removed the skin and replaced it with the bacon. I'm not partial to flabby skin on my turkey.

I am confused about the contamination problem. If you're cooking it, why does it matter if the bacon and turkey have come into contact? If it all comes up to temp, it should be fine. These are just my thoughts, please enlighten me.
