Planing to do turkey breasts tonight. No not these: got some from the store. Any suggestions, temp, direct, indirect, etc.

    Smoked one a week ago. Did it like spatchcock chicken....used TxBBQ rub, set dome temp at 375*, smoked indirect (normally do direct for spatch chicken) till internal temp of 160*, pulled and covered with foil for 15 min. Was great...also had turkey sandwiches for a week.

    About how long did they take to get to temp? Much over an hour?

    Did one spatchcock style (6#'s) around 10 days ago-direct, raised grid at around 375+/- for about 70 mins to 160 or so in the breast-good eats!

    Did indirect 375-400 with a little cherry wood, came out great!

    Try pecan wood smoke for turkey. Great flavor and excellent dark brown color to the skin.
    It's not a science, it's an art. And it's flawed.

    I start with a direct raised grid set-up, then about half way through switch to indirect.   Use cherry wood, adds a nice redish color.....
