Smoked Turkey Breast is an incredibly easy yet tasty way to enjoy turkey and is surprisingly easy to make on your Big Green Egg or any smoker! 




  • One bone in Turkey Breast
  • Salt, pepper, to taste
  • Sunshine State of Mind BBQ Rub (optional)

If you choose to brine, the pickle juice recipe can be found here in my Smoked Quick Pickles Recipe.

Alabama White Sauce Recipe

  • 2 cups mayo (Southerners prefer Duke’s)
  • 1 cup distilled white vinegar
  • 1/3 cup apple juice
  • 2 tsp prepared horseradish
  • 1 tbsp fresh ground pepper
  • Juice AND zest of one lemon
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • ½ tsp cayenne
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • Dash (or more) hot sauce
  • Dash smoked paprika


Place charcoal into your grill and let it get to maximum 325 degrees setting up direct and indirect zones. (If you are using a different type of smoker reference my recipe here) If brining, pull out brine and rub with salt and pepper and Sunshine State of Mind. Add wood chips and let them being to smoke and add your turkey breast.

Smoke the turkey breast at 325 until the internal temperature reads 165 in various places on the breast with a thermapen, at 325 this should take about 2 hours give or take. 

While the Turkey is smoking, combine the ingredients for your Alabama White Sauce and let it chill in the refrigerator until it’s ready to be used.

Once the Turkey has reached an internal temp of 165, tent it under foil for 10 minutes before slicing into it.

Slice the turkey breast against the grain and pair with a generous amount of Alabama White Sauce. Prepare to experience Turkey ecstasy!!!!
