Easy Smoked Turkey Breast
This recipe uses a 'pumped' turkey breast, or one that has already been brined. The package will state 'contains up to 8% of a solution of water, salt, spices to enhance tenderness and juiciness'. Normally I would use a natural turkey that does not contain such a solution, but the goal was to make as easy a turkey breast as possible.

Total Time3 hrs
Servings: 1 turkey breast
Fire up your smoker for cooking at 325 F. If you're using a Weber Smokey Mountain smoker (or any smoker that uses a water pan), line the water pan with foil and do not add water.
Use a fruit wood or lighter wood such as hickory.
Place the turkey breast meat side up in the center of the smoker.
Smoke until the meat reaches 165 F as measured in several locations.
Remove and let rest 30 minutes before slicing. Do not cover with foil as this will cause the skin to get soggy.
