    This was a great recipe. Everyone at the meal thought it was wonderful. Instead of marinating it in a 30 gal twist-tie kitchen bag, I used a 40 gal Ziplock bag, then didn't worry about leakage during the marinating/turning process. I then transferred the meat and marinade to a turkey cooking bag and didn't worry about basting it.  -  25 Nov 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This recipe has been updated by the staff in response to a request by the submitter. We have changed the lemon juice to 4 lemons, juiced. We have changed the mustard to Dijon.  -  04 Nov 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is with out a doubt the best of the best. I have a son, who with a lot of friends, do a lot of smoking of meats. I recently acquired a smoker and used this recipe on a turkey. My son said that the turkey was the best he had ever eaten and could not stop eating it. He took home a lot of left overs and told me later that they made the best sandwiches ever. DO NOT miss the opportunity to use this.  -  01 Jul 2000  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
