    Eye of Round

    Smoked one and it turned out okay. Had a nice flavor but was on the tough side. Would like to try again. Was thinking of foiling up next time half way through or finishing up in the slow cooker, with ground slab bacon or salt pork. Maybe a hunk on the rack above before. As Rivet suggested...

    Tangilicious Turkey

You might consider introducing a bit of baking powder mixed in with soft butter lathered outside the skin, again a few hours prior. Plus additional butter, alone, in underneath.  About 1/4...
