We use this recipe all the time for our deep fried turkeys. Friends often request a turkey done this way as their gift request. We also season the outside with exactly all the same ingredients as injection but measurements doubled. WE try other mixtures and store bought bottled injections and always come back to this one.

This made the BEST TURKEY I have ever eaten. This was our first time deep-frying a turkey and it worked wonderfully. I used regular salt because I forgot to purchase Kosher, but I did not have any problems with it clogging my injector. I just made sure the butter stayed hot, shook in a tupperware like suggested & swirled before I filled the injector. This turkey was super moist and very flavorful. There was only a hint of the cayenne and my husband who hates spicy food loved this. If you are looking for spicy you will need to add more cayenne. After I had injected most of the butter there was a lot of spice residue left behind in the bowl which I used as a rub. I will definately use this again! Thank you!!

We really liked this recipe. I had to use regular salt since the store was out of kosher salt. I had some difficulty keeping it mixed but you just have to stir and suck it in the injector quickly! We used this then deep fried our turkey for Christmas dinner. DELICIOUS. I used the last of the spiced butter to rub the turkey then sprinkled it w/ cajun seasoning. We will use this recipe again.

i tried this recipe due to the fact that the people i was making the turkey for couldn't handle too much spice. They loved this though, and they said it had a hint of heat. Plus it kept the turkey moist and flavorful.

One word..YUM!!!Made it the other night in a turkey breast and it was way better than the store bought injection marinade. I will definitely use this again

This was a moist and flavorful turkey. We have tired several fried turkey recipes and this was one of the best we have tried. The only thing we did different was to shake cajun spice on the turkey after taking it out of the fryer. Thanks Scibba. Bullwinkle.

This recipe calls for way too much salt. It didn't clog my injector at all. I used regular salt.

I wondered about using this recipe on a turkey cooked in the oven, so before Thanksgiving I tried it for a dry run to see if we liked it. It made the turkey very moist and flavorful. Worked perfect!!!
