Very nice, I too was worried about the lemon, but they added a nice flavor without being sour. I too used gin as I didn't have juniper berries. Thanks!

These chops were excellent. I used gin as I didn't have any juniper berries and followed the recipe exactly. I had them in the marinade for about 18 hours. I was wary at first to do this with the lemon then figured it wasn't lemon juice so they wouldn't cook. I cooked them in my turbo oven where I don't have to turn the chops over with the lemon wedges on top and cooked them for 12 minutes. The flavours are excellent and the lemon sets them apart.
