Easy Poultry Basting Sauce

Whether you have a whole chicken or turkey on the grill or rotisserie, they can both benefit from a basting. This will help to keep the bird moist and juicy as it cooks and also provides some additional flavor.

  • 1-2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons of rub used on poultry
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
