    I'm going to smoke my first turkey breast for Thanksgiving..It is a 7.25lb bone-in turkey breast..I probably wont brine but I will inject with Tony Chaches Creole seasoning with butter..Should I put rub on it also or will the injection do the trick...I plan on smoking @225-235 range with apple/cherry wood..Should I keep water in my pan?I'm figuring it will take about 4 hours...any other tips?Thanks

    Since your injecting with Tony C's why not use his spice for a rub. Coat the turkey with olive oil & dust it with Tony C's. I don't put water in the pan I use sand instead. If you want the skin crispy you will have to smoke it at 300-325, or finish it a 400 degree oven if you stay at 225.

    I would definitely put some type of rub or seasoning on the out side for some added flavor. Its going to be good!

    If it was me, I would pull it at 150 -155 and toss in the oven if that is how you want to finish it.
