Cook time 1 1/2 hours
Serves 2-4


  • Wild Turkey Breast - Brined  ·  1 
  • Butter at room temp  ·  1/2 cup 
  • White Miso at room temp  ·  1/2 cup 
  • Soy Sauce  ·  1/8 cup 


Remove turkey from brine and pat dry.

  1. Combine butter, miso and soy sauce, whisk until evenly mixed.

  2. Preheat the smoker to 250F, medium smoke. Place the turkey in the smoker and close the lid. Flip and baste using a pastry brush with miso-butter mixture every 20-30 minutes. Smoke until internal temperature reaches 140F (60-90 minutes). Remove turkey from the smoker, keep covered.

  3. Turn the smoker up to high heat (400F+). Once preheated, return turkey to smoker and baste with miso-butter mixture. Close the lid and cook for 2 minutes. Flip breasts and baste one more time. Cook for 2 minutes. The turkey should have a nice crust on the exterior but not be overcooked.

  4. Remove from the smoker and allow to rest, covered with a mixing bowl or foil, for 10 minutes before slicing.
