Recipe by Timothy H.

Fill the injector with the marinade, stick the needle into the breast and inject some marinade - do not remove the needle, turn it toward another area of the breast and inject more marinade. Do this again, for all of the places on the breast that can be reached through that same puncture.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In the above recipe it looks like just a tablespoon of Crab Boil would hardly be noticed. Don't use more unless you are sure you want to. The word concentrated is there for a reason. This marinade needs to go in a food processor or blender for 5 minutes so that it doesn't clog the injector.
  2. Emeril uses this as his injection marinade in a turkey that he dry brines for 24 hours in 1 cup of salt, 1 Tablespoon cayenne, and 1 Tablespoon of freshly ground black pepper.
