Here is a great way of smoking turkey breasts and turning them into spectacular sandwiches. I did this one as a little birthday celebration for myself 🙂 Turkey breasts are one of my favorite meats for the smoker!
I started with a 2.5 lb turkey breast and brined it overnight in a Ziplock bag
Easy Peasy Turkey Brine Recipe
- 1 quart water
- 1/3 cup salt
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
The next day I rinsed it off, tucked a little butter under the skin and sprinkled with some McCormick Poultry Seasoning (marjoram, thyme, rosemary).
Notice that nice new and shiny grill grate?

The turkey was smoked with indirect heat for about an hour and a half at 225F until it hit an internal temperature of 165F.
Notice this tower of mustard?

I let the turkey cool then sliced it up real thin.
Added the sliced turkey to a roll with cream cheese, Swiss cheese and lettuce.
Cream cheese is AWESOME on turkey sandwiches.
Put a little bacon on top, slather on a ton of Sweet Hot Mister Mustard and you are good to go!
Seriously, do not underestimate what a really good mustard can do for a sandwich. There is no need to go with plain yellow mustard when there are so many other GREAT options available.
Smoked turkey is pretty awesome. It was nice to enjoy this along with a little birthday love from my folks.
