  • 1 cup dark ale

  • 1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Cajun seasoning

Instructions

  • Pour out the required amount of beer in a bowl and let sit at room temperature 30-45 minutes.
  • Warm honey in the microwave for 25 seconds until thinned a bit. Add to the bowl with beer. Mix well until honey has dissolved. Add cider vinegar and Cajun seasoning and stir through. Let mixture stand for a few minutes.
  • Using a meat injector, carefully draw marinade into syringe and release excess air from it. Inject a small bit of marinade into multiple spots in the turkey. Cook bird as directed.
  • Remember to discard any remaining marinade that has come into contact with raw meat.
  • If making ahead of time, warm in the microwave for 15-25 seconds before using. The honey might re-thicken and this will prevent it from clogging up the needle.
