Turkey breast, turkey drumsticks and bacon goodness!
« on: January 29, 2017, 05:30:21 PM »
Today's dinner - brined turkey breast and drumsticks, did the butter milk style brine and then salt and pepper.

The bacon goodness came from smoking-meat - bacon wrapped onion rings, with a little sauce and rub on the onion then wrapped with bacon. Can't wait to try these out. Haven't done bacon in the smoker yet - or turkey, so should be a great dinner tonight!

How were the onion rings?  They look really good.

Michael, the onion rings were great. A little sauce and rub on the onion, the wrapped. The bacon kind of came undone over the process, so next time I'll use a tooth pick to keep it on better. The bacon could have cooked a little longer, but I like my bacon chewy and that's how it came out. It wasn't crisp and at the 250* I don't think it will get crisp. But, you could always put them in the oven under the broiler for a second to crisp them up.

I'll definitely make them again though.
