Injecting and smoking ?

  1. I am a big fan of injecting and deep frying my turkeys. Would injecting work if I was going to smoke it instead? If so any suggestions on a home made injection mix?

    Last Thanksgiving I smoked two injected 12 pound turkey and they turned out great. Both birds were super juicy. You can easily created your own injection sauce. Grind up about 3-4 tablespoons of your favorite seasoning in a blender or coffee bean grinder until it looks like flour. Add the ground up seasoning to 2 sticks of melted real butter and start injecting. I recommend getting a good injector from your local feed store with a very large needle to reduce clogging.

    it also helps to watch the salt, a lot of turkeys are already enhanced, so you can end up with an overly salty bird
