Turkey Breast Question and Recommendation

I will be cooking 2 8lb turkcy breasts (bone in) tomorrow for some guests. The directions state allow 20 minutes per pound and a resting period of 20 minutes. Does that sound correct? I also ASSUME i would be using a direct cook not an indirect cook. Lastly how about a dizzy pig rub recommendation. Any favors for Turkey Breast?
Thanks for the help.

    15 TO 20 minutes a pound is about right.I cook them until the internal temp reachs 160° and then let them rest for 30 minutes or so and I like Ragging River on turkey.

    I always cook indirect at 350.[p]Mike

  • Car Wash Mike,
    Do you inject the turkey breast with anything?

    No and I use very little wood if any for smoke. Poultry really soaks up the smoke.[p]Mike
