I started prepping my turkey 2 days prior and I have to say: this recipe was AMAZING! My husband, my teenage daughter (which I really must say: is a VERY picky eater) & myself, loved this flavorful recipe! From the aroma smell to the taste, this was a hit with my family! I will continue using this recipe! Thank you.

We injected our turkey about 16 hours before we smoked the turkey. This turkey was the best that we have ever cooked! Delicious! We will keep this recipe for future Thanksgivings to come...Thank you!

I loved this! The smell as it was simmering was heavenly. It gave the turkey a wonderful flavor and kept it moist. I will use this recipe again and try it on different cuts of meat.
