Depending on your smoker, there really shouldn't be a need to transfer it to the oven. Get your temp up to 325˚ or so, and an 8lb turkey breast should hit 165˚ in under 3 hours. Use a probe thermometer and don't take it past 165˚ and you won't dry it out.

Use the search function and search for Turkey and you'll find literally thousands of threads dedicated to turkey.

Just cook it til 165˚. With a barrel smoker using indirect heat you should easily be able to get your temps above 300˚.
