Smoked Boneless Turkey Breast Recipe

Smoked Boneless Turkey Breast Recipe

5 pounds of lunch meat for less than $5.


  • 3 Tbsp Kosher salt
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar (either light or dark)
  • 1 Tbsp ground black pepper
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp ground cayenne pepper
  • 4-6 pound white boneless turkey breast (I use Honeysuckle brand)


  1. Mix all dry ingredients together.
  2. Coat turkey with a little vegetable oil, and apply rub to all parts of the breast.
  3. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap, and refrigerate over night.
  4. Placed breast in a preheated 250 °F smoker, and apply 6 cherry bisquettes (or bisquettes of your choice).
  5. Smoke/cook until the internal temperature reaches 165 °F.
  6. Remove breast from smoker, wrap in foil, and allow to rest 15 – 20 minutes. During this time, the internal temperature will rise another 5 – 10 °F. The meat comes out moist, tender and delicious.


Comment by ONTRACK: Juicy, tender, a little spicier than I was expecting (which is fine)….delicious! Brian. I followed your recipe to a tee, except I used apple. And, I used Butterballs instead of Honeysuckles…..Thanks very much for posting yours, because that’s the only reason I did mine!
