    new egg,[p]Put all the lemons in you want! Experiment too. We keep lemons in the house all the time. Try a combination of lemon and orange with Dizzy Pig Shakin' the Tree Rub for all round flavor.

    new egg,[p]Yes, adding the lemon works great, but don't expect it to have a real noticeable lemon flavor. For that, you need to marinate with lemon.[p]Also, the MadMax turkey recipe uses a lemon in the cavity. (Along with several other things.) I only do my turkeys this way now and it works great on chicken too.

    Car Wash Mike,[p]Did you brine or marinate it?
