Boneless Turkey Breast

I have a 3lb. boneless turkey breast thawing for dinner tonight. I've never cooked one of these, so I need help. What's the best temp to cook it at, and how long will it take? I am not brining, just gonna season it with one of the Dizzy products and smoke with pecan. Thanks in advance, you guys (and gals) are always great to help.[p]~nikki[p]p.s.- can't wait for eggfest!

    nikkig,
    I've done a couple...usually do indirect @ 350* for about 2 hours.
    About to smoke a duck for a friend on the large; meatloaf tonight on the small!

    nikkig,
    I'd cook it at the same temp you would in an oven, probably 325. I've done a number of bone-in turkey breasts at 325. I don't think a 3 pounder is going to take 2 hours. As always, cook until the internal temperature is where you like it, 160-165ish probably. Sounds good![p]TNW

  • nikkig, If you have an injector and are interested in a very good injection solution, I have a recipe for you. This solution is something I use on boneless/skinless turkey breasts.[p]You or anyone else you wants this recipe will have to e-mail me though as I do not want this recipe posted until I try it in a BBQ contest. :-)[p]Lager,[p]JDB[p][p]

    Also, if you have the injector, I find that injecting pure maple syrup really gives the meat a nice flavor.

    The Naked Whiz,
    You're probably right. Damn old eyes/brain didn't see "boneless". I've only done whole turkey breasts and they take a couple hours. Thermometer is going to tell the answer either way.

    Well what did you decide on and how did it turn out? I have never cooked on of these boneless ones with the exception the pressed and formed boneless ones that are precooked. [p]Ashley [p]

    Zip,
    It was very good. This was one of those 3lb. Butterball boneless breasts thats held together in a string netting. I rubbed it down with olive oil, and coated it with Tsunami spin. Cooked it at 325 for about 2 hours over a drip pan, until it was 160 internal. I'd definately do one again.[p]~nikki
