Stephensons bbq tonight…with fried chicken. Love that place.
Man, I would love to join you…


Go often? We love the place.
Not in a long time. I like it…. I really enjoy the simple decor or it could be called, southern hospitality.


You need to go. Great place and great food. We try once a week if possible.
With my diet, I couldn't go once a week. I don't need to eat fried food that often. That said, I can only dream…. Have a nice dinner…
If you like chicken and dumplings or chicken and pastry, they have that once a week. Not fried. Outstanding.
They cook the chicken .... bones and all. Delicious !

Chicken themed weekend continues. Later today, fried chicken sandwiches with all the fixings. I've got to figure out bbq chicken on the grill. Turns out okay, just seems to be missing something.

Was in KC for a conference since last Wednesday....

Saw some interesting weather and prayers to the folks in Nebraska and Oklahoma. It was wild in KC so I can't fathom what they went through with the real deal tornados, hail, wind and torrential rains that came through there.

Had several different types of smoked meats. And I am of the school that BBQ is pig. Nothing else.

  • Smoked Turkey - by far their best offering. For some reason the smoked turkey in KC is far superior than any other place I have had it. Trust me, I've been to every place I could to try when available.
  • Smoked Sausages - ehhhh.... not bad... but not Texas quality.
  • Brisket - better than most places but not Texas quality.
  • Pulled Pork - take it out of the rotation. Not even close to public school quality Q we had growing up in NC.

I will say that KC is one of the cleanest cities I have been to since Covid. Few homeless scattered about but for the most part everyone felt safe walking at night from place to place.

People were super friendly and the portions you got were enough for a minimum of two meals. That was the only downside of there not being many homeless.... we were in hotels and had dinners every night so we normally give the to go plates to the homeless. Wasn't the case this time.

Probably going to be eating a lot of rabbit food the next few days after week of decadence.

I have tried to smoke boneless turkey breasts several times.

I've brined them, quick brined them, marinated them, injected them, you name it I have tried it.

My wife and I first went to KC 8-9 years ago and she absolutely fell in love with it.

Particularly "Jack Stack's BBQ" smoked turkey breast. I know it is a chain there but I have to give it to them... they absolutely nail the smoked turkey.

I have not been able to come close to getting the flavor profile, tenderness and juiciness of theirs. I have made some valiant efforts but it always comes out too dry, too smoked or too tough. Even with injections I can't seem to get what I am looking for.

Any advice would be appreciated!

Similar experience. I think since turkey has a tendency to be dry anyway, the key is to go the minimum temp above boiling point of water. I would think if we can stay in the 215 to 220 F range, should be about the best that can be done.

I wish I had some advice. I have never had enough nerve to smoke a turkey. Hopefully someone here has some.

My fear has always been having that sucker dry as heck.

Good call on the temp.... When I get clearance from Dr. Wife to begin eating like I am 20 again I will give that a try!

For turkey breast, I marinate them

About half a bottle of spicy italitan dressing
Probably 2 tablespoons of dijon mustard
Roughly 2 tablespoons of cajun seasoning
Blend everything together

I marinate overnight, then either cook on the grill over indirect heat or in the oven at 350 until 165 internal. I usually do this for sandwiches/wraps, so I wrap them in foil and fridge until cold and slice

Do you inject the same marinade?

So you aren't using a smoker?

Good question. Tonight, the youngest and I are grilling chili dogs, ( bright leaf ) with fries. Something easy on this Thursday. Vodka, in hand.

If I am doing a deep fried turkey, this is my injection for it. It would be double the measurements for a full turkey. When I say marinate, its skinless breasts. If it were skin on, Id inject and put a layer on the skin.

Ive got Franklins smoked turkey recipe somewhere in the house, Ill see if I can find it
