  • 1 2-3 pound boneless skinless turkey breast
  • 1 pound bacon
  • 2 teaspoons poultry seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Sausage Cherry Stuffing

  • 1/2 pound sage pork sausage
  • 1/4 cup yellow onion diced
  • 1/4 cup celery sliced
  • 1 1/2 cups dried bread cubes or unseasoned stuffing
  • 1 cup chicken or turkey stock
  • 1/4 cup dried cherries
  • 1 pinch salt and pepper


  • Prepare your smoker for indirect cooking at 275 degrees F. 
  • While your smoker preheats, prepare your turkey roulade. In a medium skillet, brown the pork sausage for 3-4 minutes. Stir in the onions and celery and cook for 2-3 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook until fragrant. Pour in the cherries, bread cubes, stock, season with a pinch of salt and pepper and toss gently. Set aside.
  • Place the turkey breast on a large cutting board and butterfly open by cutting in half almost all the way through. Set the turkey in between two pieces of parchment paper and pound the turkey breast to an even thickness with a meat mallet.
  • On the cutting board, create a 5x5 bacon weave and set the flattened butterfly turkey breast centered on the bacon weave. Season the turkey breast with salt and pepper 1 teaspoon of the poultry seasoning. Spoon the stuffing mixture into the middle of the turkey breast.
  • Start at one side and carefully roll up the bacon weave and turkey breast around the stuffing. Overlap the bacon underneath the turkey and on the ends. Season the outside of the bacon with a little more poultry seasoning
  • Open the lid and put the turkey breast on the grill grates. Close the lid and smoke at 275 degrees for about an hour and a half, or until the internal temperature of the turkey roulade reads 165 degrees F.
  • Remove the turkey roulade from the grill and allow to rest for 10-15 minutes before slicing into 1 inch rounds and serving.
