So im doing madmax turkey and i was wondering if anyone here could help me with what type of wine i should use. I dont like or drink wine so i dont know much about it at all. What would be a cheap commercially available wine i should use for the turkey?


  • Ok here's the trick.  Both my wife and me love white wine.  With that said I hate it when cooking.  I don't like it at all with the Max recipe.  Don't like the smell or the taste.  We subsititute chicken broth for the wine and love it. 

    Just sayin'

    That's what I did too - chicken broth instead of wine.

  • chicken broth it is then! thanks guys
  • No no no,

    Wine adds acidity and a neccessary dimension to the flavour. Once the alcohol is boiled off the wine is just a perfect fit. If you don't like wine add a Chablis or Pinot Grigio. There is nothing that releases the brown bits (or fond if you must) like a wine will. Use a drinkable white, don't spend a ton but it is essential
