You don't need a smoker; any covered grill will give the same effect. Simply place the turkey breast on the cool side of the grill and use soaked wood chips.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine the first 10 ingredients in a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Remove from heat; cool. Combine lime juice mixture and turkey in a large zip-top plastic bag. Seal and marinate in refrigerator 2 hours. Soak wood chips in water at least 30 minutes. Drain well.

Step 2

Preheat gas grill to medium-hot (350° to 400°) using both burners. Turn left burner off. Place wood chips in a disposable foil pan or a foil packet pierced with holes on grill over right burner. Remove turkey from marinade; discard marinade. Place turkey, skin side up, on grill rack coated with cooking spray over left burner. Cover and cook 1 1/2 hours. Turn turkey over; cook 15 minutes or until meat thermometer registers 170°. Remove turkey from grill. Cover loosely with foil, and let stand at least 10 minutes before carving. Discard skin.

This is one of my favorite Cooking Light recipes. It is fantastic to make for sandwiches for the lunch instead of lunchmeat. The spices make the flavor.

Great recipe! I loosened the skin so the marinade would get underneath it, and like others suggested, I marinated it overnight. Just take straight out of the marinade and put on the grill - don't wipe it off. The marinade leaves a nice crust on the turkey that gives it a good flavor. The whole family loved it - will definitely make again!

I lost this recipe and so glad I found it! So moist and the smoked flavor is amazing. My sister, who normally hates turkey, only likes this one. So much easier and so much better than the traditional turkey routine!
