I did not brine the turkey breast but only soaked it in salt water.
The Wild Turkey was in the crock pot around 12 hours due to not brining
before hand and/or using my basic
game marinade. If you choose not to
brine and/or marinade, slice the turkey breast across the grain in about 1
inch thick slices which will reduce the crock pot cooking time.
Turkey Breast had a wonderful flavor with just a little kick to it from my
Bill's Meat Rub and the freshly ground black peppercorns.
