This smoked turkey breast is tender and sweet. The long smoking time allows it to be more flavorful and tender, so keep it low and slow.


  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup dry sherry
  • 1 tablespoon  butter
  • 1 lemon (juiced)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (3 to 3 1/2-pound) skinless, boneless turkey breast
