1 tsp Black Pepper
1 stick Unsalted Softened Butter
6 smashed Garlic Cloves
1 tsp Kosher Salt
1 tbsp Louisiana Grills Champion Chicken Seasoning
4 Rosemary, Springs
6 sprigs Thyme
1 7-lb. Bone-in Turkey Breast
Perfect for a smaller holiday gathering or Sunday dinner), this Butter Smoked Turkey Breast is a delicious and convenient alternative to cooking an entire turkey. Basted in butter and fresh herbs right on the grill, the tender meat is infused with wood-fired flavor while still having the delicious buttery and crisp outer skin. The butter browns as the turkey cooks, adding a nutty richness that can be spooned over the top after cooking or turned into a mouthwatering gravy.
After rubbing butter on the inside and outside of the turkey breast, season the inside cavity and outside of turkey breast with Louisiana Grills Champion Chicken Rub, salt and pepper.
A 7lb bone-in turkey breast smoked at 225°F should take about 2.5 hours to reach a safe 160°F internal temperature.
We recommend using New England Apple Hardwood Pellets with this recipe.
For even more juicy and tender turkey, inject the breast prior to cooking with melted butter and chicken stock.
