I've always done bone in....but I cook turkey hotter than regualr Q...about 275* grate rub the breast down with some oil and some seasonings I like poultry seasoing, garlic powder and onion powder,,,,put a pan under the turkey to catch the drippings and use as a mop if you like....I like to use cherry to cook fowl..it gives it a nice color...If you want put some chicken stock in the pan with an onion add some water and some seasoning and use that as a mop

Yeah, somewhere else I read to smoke it between 275* - 325*
Any idea on final internal temp? Plan to use cherry and apple wood, didnt think about mopping but that sounds good.

Depending on the size 3-4 hrs sounds about right

The most important thing no matter how you cook it, is to not over cook it. I pull my turkey breast around 163* internal temp, then light tent with foil and let rest and cool before slicing. Fruit wood if you have any will be great with turkey! Good luck!
