I bought two of them, which is thawed in the fridge, and then brined last night.(gallon of water, 2 cups of kosher salt, 1 cup brown sugar, bay lead, cinnamon stick, rosemary, whole pepper corns).
Today, I pulled them out of the brine and rinsed them off, before throwing them on the grill for an hour and a half(indirect heat and wood chips to give them some smoke...temp between 250 and 300), and then placing them in a 350 degree oven until the got to 170 degrees.
After I pulled them from the oven, I let them cool to right around room temperature, before starting to slice them as thin as I could by hand.
Now...here is where the math get's wonky, and I need to do some more research. I ended up with just around 2 pounds of sliced turkey on that plate...which is not what I expected to end up with. I'll admit...I pulled some fairly inedible skin off each breast, and I did some sampling during the slicing, and my wife had one slab of turkey that was probably 3-4 'slices' thick for her dinner(passing on my pancakes). But...we didn't do enough sampling to account for a 66% weight loss.
One thing that has my highly curious is how much the turkey breast initially weighed. You see....the package came with a pouch of 'turkey gravy' already wrapped up with the bird...and I'm willing to bet it weighed at least 8 ounces...and maybe even close to a pound. That's a pretty huge difference, and I wish I had weighed the breast prior to starting...and still a label around to glare at. Did the label say 3lbs total? Can I got stick it to Safeway because they said the turkey was $3 a pound, when it was really 2 pounds of turkey and 1 pound of gravy in each package?
All I know is that this mystery is the difference between 'Great Deal' $3 a pound turkey, and 'That had better be the best stuff you've ever eaten' $8-$9 a pound turkey.
Luckily, while the final calculated price is not as cheap as I hoped it would be, the sliced turkey on that plate is about 17 times better than anything I ever bought at the store deli counter.
