Smoking my first turkey this year.  I'm going to do a simple dry brine (Judy Bird recipe) and then smoke it with apple and pecan wood.  I just picked up an injector as well, was thinking a garlic butter type concoction.  Any suggestions on a recipe for an injection marinade that would go well with this?

Thanks,

Tim

Tony'C makes great injectable marinades.

I'm using his roasted garlic & herb for our turkey.

Walmart sells them and they even come with a throwaway injector.

I used to melt butter & put garlic powder & lemon juice in it & use that for an injection.

But if your not careful & you get too much in one spot the butter will coagulate when it cools off.

Then you get a big mouthful of garlic butter.

It wouldn't break my heart to get a big mouthful of garlic butter.. Heck I would just toss in an extra piece of turkey.

However, point well made and I myself will have to watch that, for the co-worker I am doing one for wouldn't like that I am sure.
