    Uncle Dave,
    Indirect should work well even without brining. Just put on a rub of your choice and cook it at about 325 degrees. If you want a crispier skin, go direct the last half hour or so.

  • Uncle Dave, BRINING is the only way to go. Put your turkey breast in a pot and just cover it with water. Add 1/2 cup kosher salt, 1/2cup brown sugar, 12 oz. orange juice, tbs.crushed chili pepper, tbs. garlic powder and any other spices you like. Put in fridge over night. Brining itself will give you a juicy breast. Your own experience after a few trials will tell you what spices to use. Get your indirect heat unit up to about 225 deg. Put a thermometer in the heaviest part of the breast. Cook to about 170 or so. Let it stand about 15 or 20 mins. Slice and enjoy. The new remote control thermometers are really great. You can keep an eye on the meat with opening the grill. Good luck

    JimW,
    I'm figuring the breast goes in skin-side-up. Do you flip to skin-side-down for crisping?

    BlueSmoke,
    I leave the breast up. The skin crisps up nicely.
