Turkey Basting Juice

Recipe by: BBQGuide

Prep time:


1 medium onion
1 stick butter
neck and gizzard
3 cups chicken stock or water or bullion
2 tsp chopped rosemary
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup vermouth
1 cup sweet marsala wine
juice from two lemons

Melt the butter in a heavy pot over medium high heat. Chop the onion and sautÈ in the butter until just translucent. Add the neck and the gizzard and continue cooking for about 4 minutes. Add the rosemary and stock and simmer until reduced by half. Strain well. Use the gizzard and neck in the stuffing or the gravy. For the basting juice, mix together the stock preparation, one half of the marsala and vermouth and the juice of one lemon. Use the remaining wine and vermouth and lemon juice if needed. I use all of the mixture for a 20 lbs turkey, so I wouldn't think you would need to use all of it for a smaller turkey. This really keeps the turkey moist and flavorful. BTW, roasting a turkey on the grill - even if you don't use this basting juice - makes a very, very flavorful and juicy turkey (and whole chicken too).

Bless us oh lord, for these gifts which we are about to receive, from thy bounty, through Christ our Lord. Amen. Visit Hickory Works!
