The Red Eye Rub and gravy have gained a lot of popularity over the years! The coffee based flavorizer earned it's legendary status on the combination with pork! Some know it's great with steak but only some know how delicious this rub tastes on poultry! So here we go! Red Eye Rubbed Smoked Turkey Filet for you to make!
Mix all red eye rub ingredients thoroughly by hand breaking up any clumps! I use parts as measuring unit so you can chose how much of the rub you make by taking spoons, cups, ...
Rub the Turkey Filet with your homemade Red Eye Rub (or use the Dizzy Pig red eye express rub).
Add a couple of chunks smokewood (cherry, apple, Mesquite, ...) to the coals and wait till the smoke turns blue before adding the turkey filets!
Smoke the turkey filets low and slow until they reach an internal temperature from 74°C/165°F. This takes about an hour depending on the meat and temperature.
