    Vortex turkey breast

    I've done roasted chicken in the kettle using the vortex with great results...
    should work for a turkey breast too, no?

    Don’t know why it wouldn’t work.

      I haven't done that, but my concern would be that a turkey breast might be too thick and the outside would get over cooked before the inside is done. If you could keep the temp around 350°, you should be OK.

      Has anyone actually done this? What temp did you use?

        You are the cook, so "remember time and temperature". Turkey breasts are larger than chicken breasts.
        You can do it, and don't forget pictures.

          Never thought of doing a turkey breast in the vortex. I might just do that this year. It would be really easy.

ID:	1321030 So, I gave this a shot today. I would say it turned out good, not great.
            Cooked faster than expected, (1:15) had intended to pull at 150, but ended up not pulling til 165. By the time everything else was ready, it wasn't dry, but I've definitely had juicier.
            it wouldnt fit on the chicken holder, but fortunately I was able to get it to stand on its own...
            Served it up with mashed taters and roasted brussels...
            probably will try this again, using this experience to make it better next time...

              I have never cooked inside the vortex but I've seen others do it. I wonder if you would have been happier cooking outside of the vortex?

            Interesting cooking method. That wasn’t what I was expecting.

              Still don't know why one needs to buy an inverted "cone " to cook poultry?? Charcoal, flame, temp control. time, and a watchful eye should be all that's needed. It's a grilling accessory I don't think I'll ever need! But to each his/her own! Just sayin'!

                I made mine from a $3 bowl I got from Goodwill. You don't need any charcoal basket but they can improve performance and can be convenient. A vortex does both very well.

                One doesn't.
                One likes to try different things..
