    Looking to smoke a turkey this Thanksgiving and have heard that injecting the bird results in a great tasting moist bird............That's for me!

    Can anyone help with any super injection recipes?

    Thanks, John

    I can also vouch for Tip's injection recipe, good stuff.

    Also popular is injecting with cajun seasoning and butter, or you could do a honey injection or a savory herb and butter injection.

    I have injected a many of turkeys too but not for smoking but they were for fring the birds and it works. I have usually used that cajun butter injection many of times and it's good. Now Jim (fire it up) has injected many birds he said before smoking and I'm doing several birds this year and I will try aleast one if not more with this injection. So go for it and let us know.[​IMG]

    I agree with using cajuninjector marinades. The Creole butter is probably the best for turkey. I have used these for many years with great success.
