What is the best method to keep the smoked breasts from drying out for 100 people?

I would start with using bone in skin on breasts...God's insulation lol.

How much of a time frame are we talking?

I have boneless skinless breasts that I have already split and seasoned. I usually grill mark them on both sides, then let them rest in the smoke until they reach temp. The event starts at 6pm Saturday. I need to transfer them without losing any moisture. I was wondering should I grill them partially and finish in the oven, but I don't want to lose the hickory smoke flavor

If they aren't overcooked when finished, you shouldn't lose any moisture. Smoking and then finishing in the oven won't make them lose any smoke flavor.

Thanks for the info! I'll smoke them halfway, then finish in oven. We'll see what happens.
