Smoked Turkey Breast with Stuffing

This preparation of a Smoked Turkey Breast with Stuffing filling creates a moist yet flavorsome dinner main.

A melding of the old fashioned stuffed whole turkeys and the modern turkey breast with the stuffing on the side this version combines the best of both worlds with a traditional style stuffing wrapped in turkey then smoked.

The sweet smoke combines with the earthy stuffing to enhance yet not overpower the turkey breast. The stuffing also keeps the turkey breast moist during the smoking process.

Ingredients

Stuffing

6 slices of white bread

1 egg

1/2 onion, finely diced

small carrot, finely diced

1 stick celery, finely diced

1 teaspoon sage

1 teaspoon salt and pepper

water, as needed

1 large turkey breast

herb rub

Equipment

bowl

butcher's twine

Recipe Directions

  1. In a bowl break up all the bread into small pieces. Add the onion, carrot, celery, sage, salt, and pepper.

  2. Crack in the egg and add a tablespoon of water. Using your hands or a wooden spoon combine well so the bread further breaks up and absorbs the moisture and heavenly spreads the other ingredients. If still dry add additional water a tablespoon at a time until moist but not runny.

  3. Preheat the smoker to 225 degrees F (107 degrees C), add a chunk of hickory and apple wood.

  4. Prepare the turkey breast by removing any skin, fat, or similar. Taking a knife start cutting the breast in half, but don’t go all the way through thus butterflying the turkey breast to create a larger, flatter piece of meat.

  5. Layout 5 pieces of string evenly on a chopping board then place the turkey evenly over it. 

  6. Place the stuffing evenly across the center of the turkey. Gently roll the turkey making sure not to push too hard otherwise the stuffing will be squeezed out. 

  7. Stating at one end gently tie the twine around the turkey breast, the twine is just to help the meat hold its shape and does not need to be very tight.

  8. Sprinkle with the herb rub.

  9. Add the turkey roll to the preheated smoker and cook for 3 hours. The turkey is ready when it is at 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Remember the turkey breast is the outside of the roll so be cautious where you are reading the temperature from, the center of the stuffing will be cooler.

  10. When cooked rest for 5 minutes before slicing and serving.
