CAJUN TURKEY INJECTION MARINADE
- Gather the ingredients.
- Place all of the ingredients in a saucepan. Simmer over medium-low heat until the butter is completely melted. Stir well and continue cooking until the sauce has completely liquefied.
- Remove from the heat and let the mixture cool for at least 5 minutes.
- Use while still warm enough to remain in a liquid state. Inject directly into the breast, leg, and thigh meat. Do this a few times to make sure the marinade is well dispersed throughout the turkey. Wipe away any excess that may leak out. Deep-fry or roast as desired.

FRIED TURKEY RUB WITH CAJUN INJECTION
This recipe came from a Southern gal who obviously knows her food. She wrote on the recipe "the basis for a good fried turkey is the rub." I must say I agree with her on this one, this is the only way we cook our turkey now. The rub and injection are a great combination--I guarantee a moist, flavorful bird. Cooking times are estimated based on the size of your bird.

CAJUN TURKEY INJECTION
- Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and simmer for a few minutes while stirring. You want to make sure the mixture is well mixed and that any herb is small enough to fit through your needle.
- Inject mixture into the thawed turkey at least 3 hours before baking. Inject small amounts of the mixture all over the bird.
- Return your turkey to the refrigerator until you are ready to roast.
CAJUN TURKEY INJECTION (BRINE)
- Blend all of the dry ingredients then mix with the butter.
- Inject into the turkey prior to deep frying (the injector must have a discharge nozzle of at least 1/16th of an inch). This recipe is enough for 1 (10 to 12 pound) turkey.

- Make the marinade by combining the Worcestershire sauce, crab boil, apple cider, honey, beer, salt, allspice, Creole seasoning, cayenne, olive oil, and minced garlic in a blender and process until very smooth, about 5 minutes. Fill a large syringe* and inject turkey in the breast and thigh area, as well as the back, wings, and legs, with at least 2/3 of the marinade. You will have to fill the syringe numerous times.
- Preheat the oven to 420 degrees F and line a large roasting pan with aluminum foil.
- Season the injected turkey well both inside and out with the kosher salt and black pepper. Place the turkey in a large roasting pan lined with aluminum foil and pour the remaining marinade all over the turkey. Bake the turkey uncovered for 30 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees F, add 1 cup of the chicken broth to the roasting pan, and continue to bake the turkey until golden brown and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the deepest part between the thigh and the leg registers 165 degrees F. (If the turkey begins to brown too much, tent loosely with aluminum foil until it is done. Also, add more broth as necessary to keep the bottom of the roasting pan from burning.)
- When the turkey is done, remove it from the oven and set aside to rest at least 20 minutes before carving.

CAJUN DEEP-FRIED TURKEY
Delicious, juicy and tender, this recipe was given to me by a true Cajun sixteen years ago and has been on our Thanksgiving table ever since. The injector and instructions for frying came with our fryer which was a good thing because this original recipe didn't explain all the nuances of frying a turkey. It is well worth the learning process, though. We strain the peanut oil after it cools and pour it back into the containers (I bought it in gallon jugs). It will keep nicely in a cool place, under 40 degrees, or in the refrigerator until needed again.

- Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion juice, garlic juice, hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce, black pepper, cayenne pepper and beer. Mix until well blended.
- Use a marinade injecting syringe or turkey baster with an injector tip to inject the marinade all over the turkey including the legs, back, wings, thighs and breasts. Place in a large plastic bag and marinate overnight in the refrigerator. Do not use a kitchen trash bag. If your turkey is large, you can use an oven bag.
- When it's time to fry, measure the amount of oil needed by lowering the turkey into the fryer and filling with enough oil to cover it. Remove the turkey and set aside.
- Heat the oil to 365 degrees F (185 degrees C). When the oil has come to temperature, lower the turkey into the hot oil slowly using the hanging device that comes with turkey deep-fryers. The turkey should be completely submerged in the oil. Cook for 36 minutes, or 3 minutes per pound of turkey. The turkey is done when the temperature in the thickest part of the thigh reaches 180 degrees F (80 degrees C). Turn off the flame and slowly remove from the oil, making sure all of the oil drains out of the cavity. Allow to rest on a serving platter for about 20 minutes before carving.

- Read the Turkey Deep-Frying Do's and Don'ts (below). In small bowl, mix all spice rub ingredients until blended; set aside. In shallow glass or plastic bowl, mix all marinade ingredients until salt is dissolved; set aside.
- Remove giblets and neck from turkey; rinse turkey well with cold water; pat dry thoroughly with paper towels. Take extra care to dry both inside cavities, because water added to hot oil can cause excessive bubbling. To allow for good oil circulation through the cavity, do not tie legs together. Cut off wing tips and tail because they can get caught in the fryer basket. Place turkey in large pan.
- Rub inside and outside of turkey with spice rub. Inject marinade into turkey, following directions that came with injector. Cover turkey in pan; place in refrigerator at least 8 hours but no longer than 24 hours.
- Place outdoor gas burner on level dirt or grassy area. Add oil to cooking pot until about 2/3 full. Clip deep-fry thermometer to edge of pot. At medium-high setting, heat oil to 375°F. (May take 20 to 40 minutes depending on outside temperature, wind and weather conditions.) Place turkey, neck end down, on basket or rack. When deep-fry thermometer reaches 375°F, slowly lower turkey into hot oil. Level of oil will rise due to frothing caused by moisture from turkey but will stabilize in about 1 minute.
- Immediately check oil temperature; increase flame so oil temperature is maintained at 350°F. If temperature drops to 340°F or below, oil will begin to seep into turkey.
- Fry turkey about 3 to 4 minutes per pound, or about 35 to 42 minutes for 10- to 12-pound turkey. Stay with fryer at all times because heat may need to be regulated throughout frying.
- At minimum frying time, carefully remove turkey to check for doneness. A meat thermometer inserted into thickest part of breast should read 170°F. If inserted into thigh, it should read 180°F. If necessary, return turkey to oil and continue cooking. When turkey is done, let drain a few minutes.
- Remove turkey from rack; place on serving platter. Cover with foil; let stand 20 minutes for easier carving.Turkey Deep-Frying Do's and Don'ts We want your turkey-frying experience to be successful, especially if it's your first time, so we've gathered these important reminders.

DEEP-FRIED TURKEY MARINADE
This is a great recipe a friend gave to my father two years ago. It is easy, and allows you to have more room in the oven for other holiday favorites. It is also the most tender turkey I've ever made. This rub is appropriate for a 12 to 14 pound turkey.

- Start by measuring how much oil you’ll need in the frying pot (too much oil can overflow and pose a serious hazard). Place the still-wrapped turkey in the pot, then fill with water until it covers the turkey by about an inch. Remove the bird from the pot, and use a yardstick to measure how much water remains — that’s the ideal measurement for oil you’ll use later. When finished, toss out the water and thoroughly dry the pot. Hot oil and water don’t mix.
- Before making your injectable marinade, you’ll need to prepare the Cajun rub. Combine the chili powder, paprika, pepper, salt, onion powder, garlic powder, and cayenne. Mix well, and set aside.
- In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, combine the beer, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, and honey. Stir until the ingredients begin to meld.
- Add the crab boil, apple cider vinegar, minced garlic, salt, a ¼ cup of the Cajun rub, and bay leaves to the saucepan. Allow the mixture to simmer down and reduce by about half.
