Pile-O-Turkey

I had 5 turkey breasts that weighed a total of 38.89 pounds to cook and decided to do them in my classic Char-Broil 940X charcoal grill.

I started by mixing up my honey brine which will be injected into the meat.



Next step was to trim off the excess skin and clean up the breasts.



Injected 4 oz of the brine into each side of the turkey breasts.



Got the marinade out as each breast will be brined and marinaded at the same time overnight in the fridge. The marinade will be Wish Bone Robusto salad dressing.



After injecting, each breast was placed into a zip-lock bag and then the marinade was poured in over the breasts.



All 5 of the turkey breasts ready to go into the fridge for their overnight stay. I did turn them over a few times during this period to be sure the marinade was covering everything.

On the morning of my cook, I rolled my CB 940X to my cooking patio.



I had the cooker loaded with some South American lump and hickory for some smoke and I lit off a charcoal chimney and when it was ready, I dumped it over my lump in the cooker.



I got the breasts out of the fridge and took them out of their bags.



I sprinkled a light coat of my no salt, no sugar, no burn, and high temp rub onto the meat.



I had the cooker setup where the left 2/3rds of the cooking grid was indirect and the right 1/3 was direct. As soon as my cooker got up to 350 degrees, I loaded the 5 breasts into the cooker. 350 degrees on the cooker thermometer measures about 285 degrees on the cooking grid.



I cooked them about 1hr and 40 min and then wrapped them in foil.



They cooked an additional 50 minutes and were done at a measured 165 degrees internal temp.



The results of the cook.

Buzz,

The turkey breasts were cooked for a couple of neighbors.
