Top 10 Turkey Injection Marinade Recipes

What to add flavor to your next turkey? Try injecting it right into the meat. Injecting Turkey is the best way to get flavor inside. An injection marinade works from the inside, tenderizing and flavoring the meat while it slowly spreads through the meat.

Beer n' Butter Poultry Injection
Use this marinade to reach deep into the meat of poultry, expecially turkey to deliver loads of flavor before you cook. Make sure the mixture is warm to keep the butter liquid.

Butter Based Injection Sauce
Remember that an injection sauce is a mariande, so you need to inject it into the meat several hours before you cook so it has a chance to spread out and flavor the meat.

Cajun Turkey Injection
This is the classic solution injected into the meat of turkeys that are fried Cajun style. By getting the flavors inside the meat you don't have to worry about the hot oil washing them off. Make sure you distribute the injection evenly so you don't get pockets of the mixture.

Greek Turkey Injection Marinade
Add some Greek flavor to your next turkey with this injection marinade loaded with lemon, olive oil and Greek seasonings.
