This smoked turkey breast stuffed with.... stuffing is so delicious. Smoked turkey breast takes on smoke so delicately and beautifully that this stuffed turkey breast will NOT just be a holiday cook for you. Stick around as I show you just how to cook a turkey breast and how easy it is.
Why cook a smoked turkey breast? Don't have a large family to feed a WHOLE turkey? or how about you just enjoy turkey and want to grill it more often? Whether you're having a smaller gathering this holiday season or just a white turkey lover - smoked turkey breast is the way to go.
INTERNAL TEMPERATURE OF TURKEY
When doing a smoked turkey breast, you want a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees. This yields a perfectly juicy turkey breast. Now, when you do a stuffed turkey breast, you want to make sure your meat thermometer is pierced into the thickest part of your smoked turkey breast and not resting in your stuffing mixture. To help, I use my Thermopro Meat thermometer. They have tons to choose from for your specific needs.
WHAT YOU'LL NEED
Pellet Smoker (I used my Louisiana Grill Founders Series)
Pellets (I used, Louisiana Grills Whiskey Barrel Blend)
Turkey Breast (4-6 skin or skinless)
Rub (I used Black Truffle, by Louisiana Grills)
Ground Sausage (0.5 lbs)
Bread (White 1/2 loaf)
Onion (1 small, diced)
Celery (1 stalk, sliced)
Sage (1/2 Tbsp)
Savoury (1/4 Tbsp)
Thyme (1 tsp)
Italian Seasoning (1 tsp)
Garlic (2 cloves, minced)
Salt and Pepper (to taste)
For this stuffed turkey recipe you want to begin by preheating your pellet grill to 300 degrees. I used my Louisiana Grills Founders Premier. Next you want to prepare your stuffing mixture by grabbing a medium sized bowl. Combine your ground sausage, onion, celery, garlic, sage, savoury, thyme, Italian Seasoning, and salt/pepper and bread. With the bread you want to rip up by hand in small bite sized pieces. Mix thoroughly and set aside.
Prepare your turkey breast. Using a sharp knife, slice your turkey breast almost in half. You do not want to seperate it completely from itself, but want lots of room to stuff your stuffing with. Using a spoon, stuff the turkey breast and flip it over to secure itself. Since we are doing a smoked stuffed turkey breast, you do not need to flip it, and does not need to be secured with butcher string (although you can if you desire). Rub the exterior of your stuffed turkey breast with your favorite rub. I used Black Truffle by Louisiana Grills.
Placed your smoked turkey breast directily on your grill and smoke for approximately 1 hour or until an internal temperature of 165 degrees. Serve with your favourite sides and enjoy!
