Need Suggestions for Turkey Breasts for Thanksgiving

How does everyone like to cook them and where can you buy them (sams, wal-mart, costco, etc.)? What rubs do you use and cook temp and times for the egg. Also should I inject it? The family wanted the turkey breasts this year instead of a whole turkey.

  • I brined one last week and it was awesome. Highly recommend that. No rub. Just brined and cooked at 350 over apple.

  • First of all...War Eagle!!!  Secondly, brining it is an absolute must.  There are tons of good recipes online that you can use.  I used Bad Byron's on the turkey breast in these pictures and it was really good.  I actually like it better on turkey than on butts.  I I like to use Hickory & Pecan for smoke.  I cook the breast to an internal temp of 165.

    Just did one from Wegman's - honey brined.  One of my favorites for turkey breast. 400 indirect for about 2 hours.
