My mom always told me not to smoke.  But I have a new hobby.  And it's delicious.  I'm now a smoker.  Not the habit that's incredibly bad for you, but the method of cooking involving smoke.

I was given a smoker that my father in law never used and decided to try it out today.  I bought a couple of bone-in turkey breasts and decided to throw em in.

So I read what I could about how to do it and learned about brining, temperatures, and estimated cook times.  Then I gave it a shot.  I know that I've got a ton to learn when it comes to smoking but the one thing that I will pass on to someone who hasn't ever done it before is that you need to give yourself a lot of time.  It's not something that you want to rush.  Slow pace at a low heat is best.

It turned out great!  I can't wait to do it again.  Next time I'll do a video for you with more info.  It really was a lot simpler than I thought it was going to be.  This thing is going to come in handy come football season!

Here's what's left:
