I have a turkey breast brining right now and will be loading it into the BGE tomorrow. It is boneless and weighs about 4 pounds. [p]I need to know what temperature to cook to and approximate total time to cook one this size? [p]I will be using indirect with a drip pan I assume? [p]Any opinions on what to put in the drip pan (juice / water)?[p]Should I be spraying with olive oil during cook?[p]Thanks in advance for your guidance.

    Dooms Dave,
    I did a 7+ pound turkey breast last Sunday and it was the best ever! I coated the outside with olive oil and seasoned (see post on injecting above).
    I cooked mine at 275* for about 3 1/2 hours...internal of 180. I cooked indirect with an drip pan and the turkey on a 'V' rack. Also, threw a few potatoes (sweet and regular) on and had a great meal with even better sandwiches the next day!
