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 is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
