Not Just for Fried Turkey!

If you don’t have a turkey fryer, or don’t want to go to the time, trouble, and expense of making fried turkey, know that this marinade recipe also works great with roast turkey too. Just inject the turkey (follow the instructions with the turkey frying tutorial), and then instead of deep-frying, roast in the oven as you usually do. You’ll still have a delicious, moist, flavorful, and marijuana medicated turkey!

A note about the Dosage for the BBQ Marijuana Marinade recipe!

This recipe will have about 44 mg THC per serving (figuring on a turkey being 16 servings).  IF you made your marijuana butter from average cannabis (10% THC) and used 1/2 ounce of marijuana to make 1 cup butter.  To adjust the dosage up or down to meet your personal needs and to reflect the strength of the marijuana you are cooking with and the amounts you used to make your butter, be sure to take my FREE 10 minute online Dosing Class that will teach you how to do it, or use my handy dosage calculator tools that do all the math for you (see below).
