Set Yoder Smoker pellet smoker to 180 degrees.

Smoked Lemonade Recipe


  • 16-18 Lemons
  • Sugar
  • 3 cups simple syrup
  • 1 cup vodka (optional)

Set Yoder Smoker pellet grill to 450.

Cut 16-18 lemons in half, then press cut side into sugar.

Place lemons cut side down on the grill, cook for 10-12 minutes (usually until grill marks show on the lemons).

Remove lemons from grill and let cool.

Squeeze lemons into a bowl and then run the juice through a strainer to catch seeds.

Mix 3 cups simple syrup with 3 cups of water and add the lemon juice.

If you would like, add 1 cup of your favorite Vodka.


You can also zest the smoke lemon peels and freeze for future use.
