Remember that an injection sauce is a marinade and needs to spend some time with the meat to work best. You should plan on using this injection marinade several hours before you start cooking. This is great with any kind of poultry, particularly turkey.

ADD WINE, Member quigleygail

I do the same butter based recipe except I add Rose wine. Don't buy dry or sweet look for a medium dry Rose. It is also wonderful in the dressing and to baste the bird in giving it a wonderful rosey brown colour to the skin. If your a real wineo add some to the gravy too! You won't be sorry!!
