I would say that since you are cutting into strips, and it is turkey, I would marinade in Italian dressing then grill em direct. 400F fire and it would take just a few minutes per side. If you really want to smoke them, rub them up, run the smoker up to 250F and check them at about 45 minutes to see where they are at.

Breast or even breast cut into strips may end up being some very dry turkey. I would grill them as Landarc suggested.

Definitely!

And be careful about adding too much smoke. Turkey will soak it up like a sponge.
