Smoked Turkey Breast

category: Regional

Studies show that the cavity of the bird insulates the stuffing from the cold environment that can incubate harmful bacteria. The safest way is to lightly stuff the Roasted Turkey just before popping it into a preheated oven. Unstuffed turkey can cook faster without drying-out and overcooking the meat. Check the temperature of the stuffing as well-160°F is ideal. When checking doneness in your turkey, simply insert a food thermometer in the thickest part of the thigh, the wing and the thickest part of the breast. The temperature should register 165ºF or higher in each part of the Roasted Turkey.
