  • 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


  • 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!
