Here's the Q-View of the finished products:

The Turkey Breast took nearly 6 hours, a little lighter color then I normally get usin hickory, but lillac will work I think.

Here are the Chix Legs, same new rub an lillac bush fer smokin wood.

All in all a very succesful smoke taday.

Just finished with supper, momma says the turkey was delicsous, Taste was very light, I'm used ta Hickory so this takes a bit a gettin used to. I think I would use it again.

Nope, no glaze just used my spritz, I think the lighter amber color comes from the lillac wood.

That turkey breast looks really good, a friend of mine just gave me a wild turkey breast that he wants me to smoke.

How was the lilac for flavor? I have a few in my yard that I am going to removing in the next week or so. I was going to haul them off, but if I can use it for smoke, than that is what I will do. GREAT LOOKIN' BIRD - NICE COLOR!

Awesome looking smokes, Tip. The lilac wood sounded a bit interesting to smoke with PDT_Armataz_01_08.gif so I'm glad to hear it turned out fairly well. Switching from the strong taste of hickory to lilac was sure to shock those taste buds! PDT_Armataz_01_28.gif

Great job - thanks for the qvue!

The lillac is very light, not alot of smoke flavor as I am used to. It's not bad either, I think this will be more suited ta fish an some poultry where one wan'ts the flavor of the seasonins to be predominant. A very useable wood though.

Tasty, Tasty. Mmmmmmmmmmmm.

Glad the lilac was a success. I've found when using orange wood I get the same nice color. Great job as usual.
