    Forgot to ask for this on my Meatwave post-does anyone have a good cajun turkey injection sauce recipe? I plan on just basting with garlic butter maybe with a little cajun seasoning in it. And yes, I will be brining.

    This is what I used for my deep fried turkey which works well. Last time around I used a smoked habanero hot sauce instead of Franks Hot Sauce - now I love spicy but the after effects - WHHHHHOOOOO!!

    1 can of College Inn chicken broth
    2 tablespoons of garlic powder or 2 ounces of garlic oil
    1 tablespoon salt
    4 tablespoons of favorite hot sauce
    1 teaspoon cayenne
    3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

    After work I'll get ya the one I use dmack, perty good, we do bout four turkeys over Thankgivin an Christmas.
  4. this is one I have used for my fried turkies... Adjust to your tastes, it is a good starting point.
    • 1 cup lemon juice
    • 3 tablespoons Old Bay
    • 1/2 cup olive oil
    • 1 cup chicken broth
    • ½ cup white wine
    • 1/2 cup butter
    • 3 tablespoons onion powder
    • 3 tablespoons garlic powder
    • 3 tablespoons cajun seasoning
    • 2 teaspoon Tabasco
    • 2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

    Combine all ingredients in a saucepan. Heat until butter is melted. Stir and continue heating until sauce is very liquefied. Before injecting it is a good idea to strain the marinade before injecting, to avoid clogging your injection needle

    Hope this helps, enjoy!

    Be careful when using butter and/or margarine. The cold meat can solidfy it and it can clog the syringe. Instead, try using oil or broth.
