I like the meat dept at our local BJ's wholesale club. They are always messing up tags and marking stuff down. So I give the meat section a good going over whenever we go there. This time we find they can't tell the difference between whole turkey and turkey breast :). The turkeys were tagged breast and the breasts were tagged turkeys :). So bought me a bunch of fresh Purdue whole trimmed (no wings attached) turkey breasts for $1.19 lb.
Here's a few of the breasts getting ready for the smoker. Trying to stay away from salt, so no brining. Just little evoo rub, some garlic and basil.
Here they are after 2hrs in some cherry smoke @ 290°. The smaller one in the back is ready to come out, pulling these at 165°. The other two finished up 20 minutes later.
All together and resting.
Some sliced and plated pics. Along with some asparagus and grilled red potatoes. Pulling them early enough still keeps them pretty moist without the brining. We liked them. .
Plenty of leftover turkey, sandwich meat for my lunches .
nice lookin breasts you got there....turkey breasts that is....love smoked turkey it is so good...and yea the cherry put a nice color on them...

Thanks everyone! We sure do like smoked turkey :). Got 4 more of the turkey breast in the freezer .
The red potatoes are real easy. Microwave them whole until tender, slice in half, brush both sides with evoo, sprinkle with seasoning and toss on a hot grill until they brown. Only takes a few minutes on the grill.
