How Do You Brine A Turkey Breast For Smoking

Smoked Turkey Breast Rub

Two excellent rubs to try when seasoning this turkey breast are:

I think the best way to accentuate the smokey flavor and apple cider brine is with a good sweet rub.

My homemade sweet rub is a good option if you enjoy the flavor of sweet and spicy barbecue. It has eight ingredients total, including smoked paprika and brown sugar, but the flavor of the meat is never overpowered. By using my recipe found on this website, you can create your own Sweet Rub at home.

Those of you who have followed Hey Grill Hey for a long time are probably aware of how frequently I use this delicious rub. It’s my favorite, and I’m glad to share it with my pals. Patio Provisions sells my Signature Sweet Rub if you’d like to stock up on this fantastic rub. To ensure you never run out, we also offer 2-pound refill bags!

I strongly suggest trying my new Smoked Turkey Rub Recipe if you want to blend the flavors of BBQ with traditional turkey. It has a great addition of traditional turkey herbs and spices along with BBQ zing. I think it’s pretty bomb!.

How Long to Smoke a Turkey Breast

It will take approximately 3 hours to fully smoke a turkey breast when your smoker is consistently running at 275 degrees F. Keep the ol’ meat thermometer on hand (I used my instant-read thermometer for this smoke) and pull the turkey breast off the smoker when the internal temperature of the thickest part of the turkey breast reaches 165 degrees F.

When it comes to this turkey breast, you want to be sure it’s cooked to the exact temperature that the FDA recommends—that is, 165 degrees F. The turkey will come off safely cooked and beautifully moist.
