After watching a recent episode of "Man vs. Food" which they showed this sandwich at the Brown Hotel, I decided to make one myself. It turned out great, the smoked turkey was out of this world.
  Turkey breast 2 Pound
  Bacon slices 8 Large
  Peanut oil 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Texas toast 8
  Tomato slices 8 Large
  Parmesan cheese shavings 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
For the spice rub:
  Coarse black pepper 1 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Coarse salt 1 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Red pepper 1 1⁄2 Teaspoon, coarsely ground
  Paprika 1 1⁄2 Teaspoon, coarsely ground
For the mornay sauce:
  Butter 4 Tablespoon
  Flour 2 Tablespoon
  Milk 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Monterey jack cheese 2 Ounce

1. Start the smoker for smoking the turkey breast.
2. On a foiled lined baking dish, place the turkey breast and coat it well with peanut oil.
3. Add the basic spice rub and coat the turkey breast well. Set it aside until it is ready to be placed on the grates of the smoker.

For the smoked turkey:
4. Once the smoker is hot, place the marinated turkey breast on the grates, cover and let it cook until the internal temperature of the meat reaches 174 degrees. Once done, remove the turkey breast from the grates and transfer onto a plate.
5. In a pan on high heat, fry the bacon slices until golden brown and crispy. Once done, remove and transfer on paper towels.

For the mornay sauce:
6. In a pot over medium high, melt the butter. Add the flour and mix well.
7. Slowly whisk in the milk and shredded cheese and bring it to a boil, stirring continuously. Lower the heat and let it simmer until thick.

To make the hot brown sandwich:
8. Place 3-4 turkey breast slices on both sides of the bread, top it with tomato slices and spoon 1 tablespoon of the mornay sauce over the tomato slices.
9. Place 4 crispy bacon slices, 2 on each bread slices and top it with some Parmesan cheese.
10. Place this under a broiler until the cheese becomes light brown.

11. Serve the hot brown sandwich as a whole or cut in half.
