Fourth of July Menu: SmoFried Turkey Breast


Since I was making smofried chicken wings, I decided to apply the same process to a turkey breast. The results were okay, but not quite as tasty as the wings.

First I rubbed and then smoked the turkey breast.

I smoked it until it reached about 155° internal. Then I dropped it into the fryer:

After a couple minutes, I pulled it, temped it, and let it rest.

Next time I will inject it for a stronger impact.

Meet My Heritage Turkey


Do you know where you turkey that are having this Thanksgiving came from? No - I don't mean your local supermarket. I mean do you know where and how it was raised? Do you know what breed of turkey you will be chowing down on when you sit down with the family? Does the money you spend on your feast support bio-diversity and promote humane farming practices?

Today my turkey arrived from Heritage Foods USA, and I am already hungry.

The piece of paper that came with the star of my feast tells me that I will be smoking an American Bronze Turkey raised by Larry and Madonna Sorell of Lazy S Farms in Glasco, Kansas. One startiling thing about them is that they are the parents of thirteen boys and one girl! Wow. At the Heritage Foods USA site you can learn more about Larry and Madonna Sorrell.

Heritage Turkeys


I saw this article at about Heritage Turkeys.

Since I am planning on smoking a turkey and a ham for thanksgiving on my Weber Bullet, I have been looking for the best bird I can find. Though I had heard of heirloom seeds, I honestly had never heard of Heritage Meats.

I can hardly wait.
