Pecan Smoked Turkey Breast Roast

Instructions, Instructions … We don’t need no STINKIN Instructions!!!

My neighbor slipped me a couple of 3-lb Seasoned Turkey Breast Roasts to try and I figured why not toss one in the MAK2 Star General Wood Pellet BBQ Smoker-Grill.  So I did what anyone would do – Right? – I defrosted the roast and then read the instructions.  Unfortunately, it calls to cook it frozen in a pre-heated oven at 350º in its own oven ready roasting bag for approximately 2 hours until the Internal Temperature reaches 165ºF.

OOPS …  What to do?  Well after all, it’s an Herb Seasoned Turkey Breast Roast and why not just cook it like any other Turkey Breast?  So I used some hot Cooking Bands that are safe to 600ºF to tie it together.

Smoked for an hour using Pecan wood BBQ pellets and then bumped temp to 325º till Internal Temperature reached 165º.  Note the pop-up timer.  Took about 3 hours.  Rested under a foil tent for 20 minutes.

The money $shot … Some very moist and flavorful Turkey Breast, shot of Gravy, steamed Potatoes and Green Beans, a scoop of Cole Slaw and a couple of Deviled Eggs …  I do believe that I’ll be making this mistake again.   SWMBO says I should read instructions more but where’s the fun in that?
