if anything, i'd get a whole turkey breast and do the same thing but on the smoker and then in the oven to crisp up the bacon.
I am looking forward to hearing how that turns out. I decided I'm just doing a turkey breast for T'giving.I actually have 2 turkeys. I just pulled the 20 lb Butterball I bought earlier in the week out of the freezer. It's going to take 4 days to thaw and then I'll put it in the brine Tuesday night. I have another turkey I got for free at Fred Meyers for spending $150. But it's going to be just one turkey traditionally roasted this year.
I'll probably try out the bacon on a whole chicken in the near future though.
You have different ads where you're at. The Safeways here have Jennio turkeys for $1.27 lb. The Butterballs are $2.49 lb.
