    I will usually smoke a whole bird until it reaches 165° and I keep my smoker at 225°. I cannot say how long it will take but this is what I do.

    I hope this helps. 
  3. Thanks .....sounds good to me
  4. Steve - make sure you brine the breast.  I use around a gallon of water, cup of pickling salt, and handful of brown sugar.  I cook at around 240 give or take 10 degrees.
