duck fat + white wine + butter + natural turkey juices = the best basting liquid in the world. ...and in a couple of hours that stuff is gonna help make for the best gravy ever!!!


we took it up a notch this year. ..rubbed about 1 cup of freshly rendered duckfat all under the skin of the bird... . then applied the butter paste and white wine. . looks and smells just awesome!!!

  • More goodness from the "Turkey Master"! You will have to let us know if it tastes as good as it looks. Then the trick will be to recall this tip for next year :)

    I always have rendered chicken fat (schmaltz) in my refrig. I use it on everything in place of butter. Mashed potatoes, stuffing, fried eggs, chopped liver. Yes, it is liquid gold. When I don't pull enough fat and skin from a roaster chicken, I buy backs and roast them until the fat is rendered. Otherwise I use scraps of skin and fat and render them on a low fire in a heavy pot. Later I may add some raw onion for more flavor. So I have to ask you, is there much difference between duck fat and chicken fat. I do know that Turkey fat can have a strong taste. I only use that in my turkey gravy, but I don't save it for later use.
