This turkey injection combines a traditional Cajun flavor with beer and honey that results in a delicious, well-balanced taste. Since this injection marinade contains honey, it needs to be warm (but not hot) when it is injected into the turkey.
1/2 cup apple cider
1/2 cup honey
1 cup dark ale
1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning
Gather the ingredients.
Bring the apple cider to a simmer in a saucepan over medium heat.
Stir in honey and mix until smooth.
Remove pan from heat and stir in beer and Cajun seasoning. Let stand 3 to 4 minutes before using a marinade injector to season your turkey.
Marinating Your Turkey
Pat surface of turkey dry with paper towels. Load a syringe with marinade mixture, making sure the marinade is still slightly warm. Inject mixture into the breast, thigh, and leg of the turkey, making sure to inject small amounts all into different sections. Wipe away any marinade that leaks through the skin. Season the skin of the turkey with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper and discard any remaining marinade. Cook turkey as desired.
