How do you smoke a turkey breast on a charcoal smoker?

How do you keep a turkey breast from falling over?
If the turkey breast won’t stay upright in the roasting pan, take two or three feet of aluminum foil, wad it up and partially stuff into the turkey’s chest cavity to create a “stand” to keep the breast steady.
Do you cover a turkey breast with foil when cooking?
Just make sure you uncover the lid about 30 minutes before the turkey’s done roasting so the skin has a chance to get crispy. We ‘ve found that covering a turkey in foil yields much moister results than roasting it without foil, and we favor simply covering up the breast to even out cooking time.
How long does it take to cook a turkey on a Weber charcoal grill?
The time it takes to smoke a turkey will depend on the size of the bird and the temperature of your grill. You can cook as low as 225F degrees, which will take about 30 minutes per pound. I prefer cooking the bird at 300-350F degrees, which takes about 15 minutes per pound.

How do I keep my turkey from drying out?
“When roasting the whole bird, the key is to cook the legs longer than the breast,” Tommy says. “Once the breast is cooked, remove the legs and put them back in the oven. This stops the breasts drying out.”
How do you know when a turkey breast is done without a thermometer?
The internal temperature should reach 180°F. To check for doneness without a thermometer, pierce the thigh and pay attention to the juices: if the juices run clear, it’s cooked, and if the juices are reddish pink, it needs more time. Put the turkey back in the oven and check again after a short time.
Is bone in or boneless turkey breast better?
If you’re cooking for 6 or fewer people this year, you might want to consider buying a bone -in turkey breast, instead of a whole turkey. Bone -in turkey breasts are not only smaller to store in your fridge, but they cook faster and with less fuss on Thanksgiving morning.
Should you cook a turkey covered or uncovered?
Always cook your turkey until the skin is a light golden color. Cover your roasting pan with a lid or foil and cook covered for 2 hours (depending on size of your bird) and uncovered for the remaining time. However, basting will not make your turkey moister, but it promotes even browning of the skin.

How many hours per pound do you cook a turkey breast?
