Outrageously Good Turkey!

Much like The Old Man in "A Christmas Story", I love turkey.  Almost regardless of how it's cooked, I find it irresistible.  However, I think I am really onto something here....

Spicy Smoked Wild Turkey Breast (this recipe is Roux-approved)

Marinade ingredients
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
3 tablespoons lemon juice
several shakes of Tabasco
1/2 teaspoon of cajun seasoning
1/2 teaspoon of coarse ground black pepper

Take boneless, skinless turkey breast and tenderize lightly with a meat hammer or a press tenderizer.  Marinate in a ziplock bag or other container for at least 4 hours (overnight is even better).

Place the breast on a cutting board and lightly cover with dry barbecue rub.  Wrap with thick cut bacon and secure with toothpicks.

Place in smoker preheated to 220F.  I like to use Mojo brand marinade in the water pan, diluted with water, but you may find something you like better. 

 Smoke until internal temperature reaches 165F (app 4.5 hours for a typical sized turkey breast).  

Slice and serve with BBQ sauce for dipping (you may find it doesn't need any dipping sauce!!) Enjoy.
