Dry Smoked Turkey Breast

Smoked turkey is the best turkey and lucky for me I just happen to have a stove-top smoker, woohoo!   About a year ago, I was wandering down the aisles of Target (a favorite pastime) and stumbled across this Stovetop Kettle Smoker by Nordic Ware for 75% off.  I of course have an outdoor smoker, but it is a pain and often home to black widows.  Another problem solved (thank you Target), now I can smoke my turkey, salmon...fear free.
