Anyone ever inject the bird?

Good evening and Happy Thanksgiving.[p]I am contemplating whether or not to inject the little bird that will be "Mad Maxed" tomorrow and wondered if any of you have any feedback on injecting. I have a jar of "Creole Butter" and have used it numerous times with good results in deep fried turkeys. This is my first time with a turkey on the Egg, so I would appreciate the tips.[p]


  • SouthOfI10,
    Hello south of I-10 I'm north of I-12. Yes the Creole Butter should work well.[p]Mike

  • Mike in Abita, Thanks. Even as far north as Atlanta, I can get Turbo Dog. Blackened Voodoo is a different story...

  • SouthOfI10,
    Hi...I asked the same question and someone suggested a creole butter in DRBBQ's book. Luckily I had the book. I haven't cooked the turkey yet but the marinade tasted great. Here's the recipe:
    1 lb butter
    1 can of beer
    1 T of BBQ rub
    1 T Paprika
    1 T Ground white pepper
    1 T Sea Salt
    1 T Garlic pwd
    1 T Onion powder
    1 T Dry mustard
    1 T Ground black pepper
    1 t cayenne pepper
    Melt the butter then add the beer and spices. mix well..let cool before injecting. I think this tastes a lot better than the bottled product.[p]

  • dawgtired, Wow. This looks great! Thanks for sharing.

  • SouthOfI10,
