Ingredients
  

  • 1 bone-in turkey breast can do whole bird, boneless, etc. - time will just be different
  • 2 jars Woeber's Cranberry Honey Mustard
  • 1/2 stick butter
  • 3-4 sprigs fresh rosemary

Instructions
 

  • Remove thawed turkey breast (bone-in) from refrigerator. Open package and rinse turkey. Remove any gravy packet.
  • In a bowl, with spatula mix together one jar of cranberry honey mustard and 1/2 stick softened butter.
  • Using a knife, separate the skin on the breast from the meat so you can slip some under the skin
  • Rub entire turkey breast with mustard/butter mixture - be sure to get some under the skin as well.
  • Slip fresh rosemary under the skin as well
  • Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight
  • Preheat smoker to 250 and place turkey in a roasting pan with a rack
  • Smoke at 250 for 2.5 hours and temp check to 160 degrees
  • You can baste the turkey with more cranberry honey mustard after about an hour
  • When temp is 160, remove turkey from smoker and let rest for 15-20 minutes.
  • While turkey is resting, you can make gravy in a saucepan! Using the gravy packet (or 1.5 cups broth) heat to boiling and add 3 tbsp of the cranberry honey mustard. Whisk together. Then add 3 tbsp cornstarch (slowly) and whisk as you go. Keep simmering and it will thicken to be the best gravy!

Notes

What if I don't have a smoker? How would I make this on a regular grill? 
You just need wood chips. Soak them in water for 30 minutes before starting the grill. One cup of wood chips will last for about 20 minutes. Keep adding chips to the grill throughout the process. 
If you use a charcoal grill, light the coals, when the coals are ready, place them on one side of the grill. Place some of the wood chips on top of the coals. Place your food on the side without the coals to cook it with indirect heat.
