About a week ago I commented on a turkey Smoking Vegas had smoked, and I asked her about the herb blend. She told me it was a blend that she sold on her website. One of the blends she sent was the Harissa middle eastern spice blend. Let me start by saying that this stuff smells AMAZING! Following her directions, I mixed 1/2 cup of the Harissa seasoning with 1/2 cup of water and let stand for 10 minutes and then added a cup of EVOO and then poured that in a ziplock with 4 split breasts and into the fridge for the night. Put them in the smoker about 30 minutes ago. Will serve them sliced on flat bread with with a yogurt sauce made from a cup of yogurt, 1 TBL of Harissa seasoning, 1/4 cup of grated cucumber, 1/4 cup of chopped green onion, and then top with diced tomatoes. Can't wait for these to come out.
Here is what is left of the pack of Harissa seasoning.

I will post the pics when it comes out and goes on the plate. Please check out Smoking Vegas' website. You can see her link on the right hand side of the page or just click on the following link. http://ivyandherbs.com/ .
