Total time: 
Serves: 9 to 10
  • The Turkey Breast:
  • 1 cup honey
  • ½ cup soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons commercial hot sauce of choice
  • 1 2 to 3 pound turkey breast
  1. To prepare the turkey breast, combine the honey, soy sauce, and hot sauce in a bowl.
  2. Using a brush, brush the mixture all over the turkey breast.
  3. Allow the turkey to sit for 20 minutes before smoking.
  4. To smoke the brisket and breast, build a hardwood fire in the fire box using pecan, oak, or any fruit wood.
  5. When the fire is smoking nicely, place the brisket on the rack fat side up, to let gravity and nature do the basting.
  6. Place the breast as far from the heat source as possible, and close the smoker.
  7. During the smoking continue to marinate the breast with the honey-soy mixture until it is used up.
  8. The smoking process takes approximately 5 hours for the breast (the skin will blacken--that's okay) and about 8 hours for the brisket.
  9. Remove the breast from the smoker and allow it to cool. Do not place it in your cupboard or everything in it will smell like smoke.
