8-14 lb turkeys

10

1

1/2

tbsp

cayenne

1/4

tbsp

black pepper

Emeril's, Cajun Marinade

2

tablespoon

Lea & Perrins worcestershire

1

tablespoon

crab boil

1/4

cup

apple cider

3/4

cup

honey

1

bottled beer

1

tablespoon

salt

1

tablespoon

allspice

1/2

cup

1/4

teaspoon

pinch, of clove

1

Season and cure the turkey with salt, pepper and cayenne. Rub

2

seasoning on skin and let sit overnight.

3

In a blender, add all the wet ingredients and then the dry

4

ingredients to make the marinade. Puree on high for 4-6 minutes.

5

Make sure all ingredients are completely pureed and add to an

6

injector.

7

Heat oil to 350 degrees F. Depending on the amount of oil used,

8

this usually takes between 45 minutes and one hour. (To determine

9

the correct amount of oil, place the turkey in the basket and place

10

in the pot. Add water until it reaches 1 to 2 inches above the

11

turkey. Remove the turkey and note the water level, using a ruler to

12

measure the distance from the top of the pot to the surface of the

13

water. Pour out water and dry the pot thoroughly. Be sure to measure

14

for oil before breading or marinating the turkey.)

15

While the oil is heating, prepare the turkey as desired.

16

Once the oil has come to temperature, place the turkey in the

17

basket and slowly lower into the pot. Whole turkeys require

18

approximately 3 minutes per pound to cook. Remove turkey and check

19

internal temperature with meat thermometer. The temperature should

20

reach 170 degrees F in the breast and 180 degrees F in the thigh.

21

Turkey parts such as breast, wings and thighs require approximately

22

to 5 minutes per pound to come to temperature.
