Injecting a turkey (Posted on 11/18/12 at 11:04 am)
I will be frying a turkey this year for the first time( well using an oil less fryer). I want to know what you folks use to inject the bird. I am guessing some butter garlic combo but would like suggestions.

I use Creole Butter from Cajun injector. Keep the needle moving to prevent the salty pockets mentioned. Liberally rub the skin with your choice of dry seasoning for tasty skin. The oil less is not nearly as good as the hot grease IMHO .
