Very nice, mine almost turned out like that.
Is it bad if my wife refers to the smoker as "The Mistress"?

Looks like the fellas have got you down the right path.  I love smoking turkey and don't respond on here all too often.  STC got me going over a year ago.  Done many since then.  I usually do a variation of Jan's rub and another house rub I found on here.  I usually make sure to use smoked paprika and sage is a must for me with turkey.

For applying it, I took all of STCs advice except for putting it under the skin.  Mine still turn out great.  I've had a few fall apart after taking off the netting over the years and one tonight as well.  What I do since I usually have extra rub is try to put it all together the best I can and then let it sit on a baking sheet overnight in the fridge.  Then after it sits and gets to room temp I put it on the rack very carefully and let it cook.  I haven't had one fall apart in more than two pieces after it cooks.

Really this is all about experimenting and seeing what works.  Love the turkey breast and I'm in hog heaven (over turkey) since Costco just got the boneless butterball's back in for $12 each for a 4.5 lb breast.

STC, you're still the man, just chiming in with my two pennies!

STC is the Guru of Turkey Breast. It is always fun to watch what he does.

If he isn't doing something crazy with them ... then He's doing

it for other people to enjoy. He is a classy guy.
