I say make the turkey breast a seasonal item and maybe go with pulled chicken sammys

But you are still gonna have those who want bone in chicken,it sells pretty good around here anyway

All 3 have their merits for sure...considering to do both pulled and bone in, just not sure if its too much. Another possibility, if I do bone-in, I could quickly chop the meat off the bone for those wanting sandwiches

Having never been a fan of pulled chicken, I would have to vote for whole chicken pieces, quarters, or halves. You could also do turkey breasts...brine, smoke, chill...then slice & re-heat a la minute.

A quick way to shred chicken is to just use a hand mixer.

Pulled chicken is a lot more work I think. It's also a lot more expensive than doing whole pieces of chicken. Last week I had to do 7lbs of pulled chicken for someone so I already had chicken halves on hand and I cooked 17 halves that weighed 1.4lb average each. Out of 17 halves I got 7.75lbs of pulled chicken. At $1.58lb for chicken halves my cost of that pulled chicken was $4.86lb. I can get a 40lb case of chicken leg quarters for $28 rub and smoke them.

The question should be what will make you the most profit?
Turkey is great but is a high ticket item.
Pulled chicken is cheap and easy using boneless, skinless thighs.
Cooking whole birds for pulled chicken will run you out of business in a hurry.
You should be thinking sammies for higher profit.

Go for turkey breast as what they said its seasonal, compared to chicken.
