What you’ll need:

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried bay leaf pieces
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon finely ground black pepper

How to make it:

  1. Place bay leaf, oregano and sage into a spice or coffee grinder and grind until in powder form ( you don’t want it to clog the needle)
  2. Take all remaining ingredients and combine in a sauce pan with the ground herbs
  3. Simmer over medium heat for five minutes, stirring often or until the salt it dissolved.
  4. Remove from heat and let cool for 10-15 minutes.
  5. Load the marinade into the syringe, injecting the mixture into the breast, thigh and leg.

For the skin: Add a light coating of olive oil to the skin and sprinkle with a generous amount of Big Guy BBQ seasoned salt.

We smoked the turkey and then placed on grill for last half hour to crisp up the skin.
