This was my first attempt at a homemade turkey injection recipe. It was excellent. I didn't have the crab boil seasoning, but used everything else. Delicious!

Didn't add any flavor.

This recipe is pretty great. Been doing it for years with some small tweaks. EVERYBODY who tastes it loves it.

Good flavor, but I like grapefriuit instead of orange juice.
