My Goodness! Almost seems like that skinless turkey breast forced irself on you! :)
Smokemom, get thee to the poultry section and post there. I really do not have much experience with turkey smoking. I raise them, butcher then and roast them, but have not yet gotten around to experimenting with smoking them.
smokemom, Where in Cali are you from? Think of the turkey breast like a chicken breast. I have only done turkey breast once, so I can not give that much help to you. I can advise you to go with the brine.
Welcome to SMF smokemom- you can't go wrong with a turkey breast. Find you some cheap bacon-the kind that has a lot of fat and very little lean- lay the bacon strips over the breast and 'pin' it in place with toothpicks. That fat in the bacon will baste the turkey breast as it melts.
