Dry turkey breast

Although I've had my BGE for about a year now, this is my first time to post a message. I hope some of you Eggsperts can give me some good advice.[p]I just did my first turkey breast (not the little one - like the whole turkey, but without the legs and wings - approx 10lbs) and it turned out a little drier than I expected. I smoked it at 325 until 180 internal temp per the BGE cookbook). I coated it with butter, salt, & pepper, and cooked it on a v-rack with drip pan.[p]Would it be better to smoke it at 200-225? Would water (or some other liquid) in the drip pan help?[p]Thanks for any suggestions!

    This is an easy one. First of all, scrap the BGE cookbook.[p]Then cook your turkey breast to 160-165, rest it a bit, and enjoy the juice!!! Sounds like you did everything right, except you cooked it way too long.[p]Cheers! And nighty night.
