    Scotty Moore's Note:

    My family hardly ever eats turkey anymore that I haven't smoked. I tried this injection at Thanksgiving, and it is the best I've done yet. Enjoy.

    1. 1
      In a small sauce pan, add the shallot and the garlic to the melted butter. Simmer on very low for about twenty minutes stirring occasionally. Add the sage, thyme, salt, pepper, orange zest, and white wine. Let simmer for fifteen more minutes to cook off the alcohol, stirring occasionally. Add the orange juice. Strain this into a bowl. Wipe out the sauce pan and return mixture to the pan. Add the honey. (When I added the honey, I just added a little, and kept stirring and tasting until the honey taste just barely started to come through.
    2. 2
      I stored this in the refridgerator overnight. The next morning I reheated it just until it was liquified, then injected it into the turkey. Smoke or bake as you normally would.

      Made this for Thanksgiving this year. We injected the turkey the night before. The next morning we put it on the TRAEGER grill and smoked it for 6 hours then turned it up and finished cooking it off. It was the best tureky I have ever made. I will definitely make it again. The whole family loved it.
