Smoked Croc Pot Turkey breast

I decided to try making a turkey breast in the croc pot after many many years of having to gravy soak the bird on Thanksgiving Day. I enjoy the fried turkey but I try not to eat too much fried foods, especially around the holiday time of the year when only unhealthy food is made.

So I purchased a bone in 6lb turkey breast, then seasoned it with salt, pepper, paprika, and garlic powder.

Then I smoked the breast at 175 degrees for about 2 hours.

Please do not try to eat any meat off, the short smoke period was just get a good flavor throughout the meat.

Next I put the bird in breast down to be sure it would be tender. I also sliced an onion and stuffed that along with garlic in the cavity. I then poured about 24 ounces of chicken broth into the croc pot to add moisture so that the meat will just fall off the bone. Then I set it on low for 6 hours.

It had smelled like I opened up a bbq restaurant inside the house.

Be careful when removing the bird from the croc pot, it may fall apart on you.

Let it cool for about 15 minutes then it will just fall apart, serve and enjoy.
