Default 8lb turkey breast to smoke or ???

I have a 8lb turkey breast thawing as I type this. It has 15% solution in it whatever that is??? Should I smoke this sucker or throw it on the kettle? I've grilled a bunch but I always wanted to smoke one. How long would this take? What temp should I smoke at? Is it worth brining with a 15% mystery solution in it? I'd like to make pulled turkey sandwiches once done.
Thanks guys all your advise has made me a lot better at grilling and smoking. Love this forum.

I would not brine since it already is "enhanced." As to weather to smoke or kettle it... For just the breast, I like to smoke as I think that is where the white meat really shines. I would smoke at 300. 20-25 minutes per pound but watch internal temp.

I agree with Sliding Billy..... With 15% enhancement is is pre-brined for you.

agreed 300 + and smoke early as it will stop taking smoke quick and then you will soot up the skin. I like to put some butter under the skin.

To part or not to part: that is the question. Whether ‘tis nobler in the mind to part and suffer the slings and arrows of ostentatious brothers or to not part when faced with a sea of dissent, and by compromise end it? To part: to succeed. Forever more: and by succeed to say we win.

Yeah it looks good...but how does it smell?

Cover it with olive oil, put some rub on it and smoke it like 325-350. Pull her off when she looks nice and golden brown.....
