Default Icing the breast

I here more stuff on this site that seems crazy but cool for sure. Do people truelly ice down the breast before smoking? Does it make that big of a difference. (For the record I did see Rick's Tropical D. doing it, and judging the pics it would be hard to argue with him)

I get great results icing down the breasts of whole chickens using the 500 degree/1 hour cook on the BGEs. Easy to do and the breast turns out to be perfect and exceptionally juicy just when the dark meat is done.

Give it a try.

I tried this yesterday for a department lunch at work today. Everyone raved about how juicy and tender the breast meat was. I will always do this from now on.

Yup, it works great. It's part of the Mad Max turkey which is excellent. The key is 20 minutes, no more, no less.



As for the particulairs, here's the whole shooting match:

The result:



However, I do brine my birds but I must it's the best way I have found to do a turkey on the smoker. It's also a family and guest favorite.
