Turkey breast side down?

Joined Jan 5, 2019
I did my first Turkey Breast weighing in at 9 pounds.I put it in a v rack breast side down. I coated in extra virgin olive oil used a Garlic Herb Rub, stuffed neck cavity and butt cavity with sliced apples and onion chunks. I did a slow smoke at 225 for 4 hours then bumped up to 300 for around another 5 hours taking internal temp to 170. I injected butter garlic herb after 4 hours in 4 different spots next to the bone through the thick meat areas. The breast turned out amazing. The flavor was awesome juicy and tender.

Just for clarity's sake, the total smoke was 5 hours, not 9. Correct?
