I'm looking at a recipe that calls for a tablespoon each of garlic salt and lemon pepper, but instead of using the prepackaged stuff I'd like to make my own if it's not too difficult/expensive. Any ideas? For the garlic salt I was thinking that simply adding some granulated garlic to some fine sea salt would work, but what about the lemon pepper?

Then again, there are a couple of Penzey's stores in Madison and I've never visited one... :wink:

My mother in law gave me some homemade Lemon Pepper awhile back... I have no idea how she made it. It is pretty good stuff. I'll get my wife to ask her how and get back to you.

I've seen minced lemon peels in the spice section of several stores. Grinding that with whole peppercorns should do the trick.

If you have or know someone that has a food dryer/dehydrator put the lemon peel/zest in there for about 4 hours or so and when dry add it to the pepper mill.

After you mix up the garlic salt put it on the smoker (low heat, garlic will burn and taste bad) for smoked garlic salt. Or smoke the salt then add the garlic later.
Let us know how things turn out.

Thanks, Mike. I'll probably have to buy the lemon zest already dried but should be able to do everything else.
