Wild Turkey Recipes

Bar-B-Q Turkey

1 stick butter or margarine
1/2 chopped green onions or chives
1 cup of broth
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 tbs. thyme and savory – mixed
3 tbs. parsley

Cook onions until tender in butter; add other ingredients. Bring to a full boil. Cut turkey in pieces, and cover each piece of turkey with this mixture. Baste often on grill. Cook 45 to 55 minutes or until done. If rotisserie is used, it takes about one and one half hours until done.

Deep Fried Wild Turkey

1 wild turkey – whole and dressed
2 1/2 gal. peanut oil
1 c italian salad dressing
1/2 c lemon juice – fresh
3 tbs. onion juice
3 tbs. garlic juice
2 Tbs. Worcestershire sauce
1 tbs. liquid smoke
1 1/3 oz cayenne
1/4 c salt

Mix all ingredients except turkey, pot and peanut oil to make a marinade. Let stand overnight in refrigerator. Use meat injecting needle to inject all through turkey. Put turkey and marinade in a large plastic bag and keep in the refrigerator for 1 to 3 days.

Remove in time to bring to room temp before cooking. Heat oil in a 40-60 quart pot to 325°F (Use candy thermometer). Immerse turkey completely and cook for 4 minutes per pound. Place a pie tin with holes in the bottom in the bottom of the deep fryer to prevent sticking.
