  1. Defrost turkey completely in a sink filled with cold water, or in the fridge.

  3. Preheat smoker to 350 degrees (or oven to 375 degrees).
  4. Zest, then juice the lemon into a bowl.
  5. Add lemon juice, lemon zest, chopped rosemary, oil or butter, salt, and pepper to a small pot over medium heat and bring to a simmer.
  6. Using a basting brush, baste entire top of the turkey with half of the lemon mixture, set the rest aside.
  7. Place turkey directly on the smoker cut side down (or in the oven still ON the baking sheet) and cook for 2 hours, basting the turkey at the 1 hour mark with the remaining lemon mixture.
