In a brine now with sage, rosemary and thyme. We'll see what happens. Also have a batch of Heathers doe in a very hot jerky brine to hit the smoker as well. I really like the smoked venison brined like jerky, especially with super sharp cheddar ;) .

I smoked one breast, not that good, too lean it is pretty dry, and that wa a cold smoke.  I took the rest ground them up with applewood bacon, added feta cheese, roaster red peppers, kalamative olives, minced onion and garlic and made greek turkey burgers, that was the ticket ;)
Nothing beats the view through a peep!

I was planning to wrap the breasts in thick cut bacon and then only hot smoking (~200f) until it reaches the 165f internal temp. I'll see what happens, it'll get eaten some how whatever the result is.

If you have a injector, you can use that to add moisture and flavor. One of the best things I have made from wild turkey is a turkey salad for wraps. Like a tuna salad....or chicken...with mayo and all the vegies added it is good. Run small chunks thru the food processor....Then celery, red and green peppers or anything you like and add mayo and mix. Put on a wrap with some grated parm cheese.....
Other than that I cut the breast into strips and soak in balsamic vinegar and coat with italian bread crumbs, then deep fry.

The turkey salad wrap sounds really good upstate I'm going to have to test that out with the other breast I have left

Slow cooked in the crock pot works well for the initial cooking....add some chicken broth and some noodles and two meals out of the breast... ;D
