Wow, probably will never by store bought again. Very very good. I used chicken broth instead of OJ for a duck and it was the best duck ever. Also used garlic powder instead of cloves so I did not need a blender. Thanks for posting. Update: Works great for beer can chicken also and the leftover sauce freezes well for next time.

I have to admit, I was very skeptical about this one. Having fried many turkeys over the years, I've always used a butter based recipe. This OJ based injection was a HUGE HIT! VERY moist with a great but not over powering flavor. A professional chef, who I had never met before yesterday, did the carving for me (something I hate doing). He could not get over the moistness & flavor. I did double the recipe for an 18 lb bird and that left me about 1/2 cup (+/-) of unused marinade for those that wanted a little on the side for drizzling on their plate (like me!). Be sure to blend thourghly as directed or even a little longer. I used a puree setting on my blender. No problem with injector clogging even though I used sea salt. For those that have clogging problems with any injection - avoid the stress & buy a QUALITY injector. Those little plastic ones often included in "kits" are a waste of time. GREAT Recipe. Many thanks Dominick & Amanda!

Good job, Dominick! This was a big hit. Thank you, thank you for the directions of running it through the blender for 2-4 minutes. The last time (a good 20 years ago) that I tried to use a marinade injector, the needle hole plugged up repeatedly with the spices, and I tossed out the injector and said "never again." The seasoning blend was PERFECT, and had the perfect amount of "kick."

Thanks so much! Easy, good and cheap. Tastes better than the store bought stuff. I made it just as directed.
