      I used this recipe to smoke a turkey breast. The day was cold and windy and I was not able to maintain my target tempreture. There was not as much smoke flavor imparted in the meat as I would have liked. The breast turned out moist with a nice color. As made, I found the lemon zest flavor to be more intense than I would of liked. Maybe more smoke would mellow the lemon out. Good recipe and definitely worth another try.

      Delicious, moist and easy! I made this as directed with a couple of exceptions: I used my roaster instead of the oven (you know the big, white, clunky thing that sits on the counter and you can make everything in- I think that's a roaster). I also added a bit of onion powder and dried chives in place of the green onions as mine were turning and I didn't want to risk it, and I sqeeezed the juice from half my lemon into the water I put under the turkey. I was worried that it would be dry since there wasn't any butter or oil in withthe bird, but have no fear - it was perfect!! I did baste a bit - but I don't think it was needed, just my inability to leave it alone!! (Sorry I didn't get a better picture for you - maybe next time!!) Wonderful recipe, Mama!! Thanks for posting!!
