Savory Bacon Up Bacon Grease Turkey Injection

Main Course
Thanksgiving, Turkey fry, Turkey Injection
Whether it's the night before (ideal!) or even just 20 minutes before frying, you can add moisture and flavor to your turkey fry with an injection recipe. And adding Bacon Up will take it to the next level, of course!
This "SAVORY" injection features red wine vinegar and soy sauce.


  • 1 Sauce pan
  • 1 Meat injection syringe


  • 3/4 cup butter 1.5 sticks
  • 1/2 cup Bacon Up Bacon Grease
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce lower sodium version works fine
  • 1/2 tbsp lemon juice to taste
  • 2 tsp seasoned pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp celery salt


  • In a sauce pan, heat butter and Bacon Up until melted. Stir in the other sauces and seasonings. Turn off heat and allow to cool until injection fluid can be safely handled.
  • Using a meat injection syringe, insert about 2 tablespoons at a time directly into evenly distributed spots around the breast and white meat sections of the turkey. Be sure the turkey is completely thawed first and also be sure to get the needle all the way into the meat, not just under the skin. (Don’t worry too much about the legs and dark meat – they generally have enough fat and flavor to stand on their own.)
