Smoked Turkey Breast

     I would love to smoke a whole turkey, but it takes something like twelve hours for a small bird! I want smoked turkey, but I’m not getting up at 2 A.M. to start it! My favorite part of the turkey is the skin, and sadly I couldn’t find breasts with the skin still on. Well, I have bought the Arron’s Kosher one’s before, but the meat was so tough and rubbery I just threw it away! So I just tried this recipe with turkey tenders, which I than cut into smaller strips, as we were bbqing with friends and I didn’t want to make hungry friends wait for hours for the meat to smoke. I also threw some random sausages on the smoker… So good! Especially smoked Italian sausage!
