Editor's Note:

Nutrition data for this recipe includes the full amount of marinade ingredients. The actual amount of marinade consumed will vary.

Cook's Note:

Keep marinade warm (but not hot) to inject. The secret to using this injection marinade is to keep it just warm enough for the butter to stay liquid.


Use a flavor injector tool to inject warm marinade into every inch of a 15-pound turkey's breast, thighs, wings, and drumsticks. Pour excess marinade over turkey. Re-inject drippings after turkey is done for a super-moist and tasty turkey!
