This marinade injects a rich and buttery flavor directly into the meat of any type of poultry. Particularly good on turkey, the secret to using this injection marinade is to keep it just warm enough for the butter to stay liquid. We recommend this recipe for Thanksgiving or other holiday turkeys. You will be pleasantly surprised at how effective and delicious it is.
- Combine all ingredients in a saucepan over a low heat. Stir and heat until salt is dissolved and the sauce is even and runny.
- Remove from heat and keep warm (but not hot) enough to inject.
- Fill marinade syringe with the mixture and inject into turkey breast, legs, and thighs. Season outside and under the skin with whatever rub you're using. Cook as directed. Discard remaining marinade after use.
