WALKER, Mich. (WZZM)- For the past several years, Tom and Sheryl O'Connor have been sharing unique turkey recipes.

In honor of Grand Rapids being named Beer City U.S.A., they decided to create a turkey with Founders' Dirty Bastard brew.

This turkey injection combines a traditional Cajun flavor with beer and honey to give you a well-balanced flavor. Since this injection marinade contains honey you need to use it warm (not hot).

Yield: Makes 2 cups


  • 1 cup beer (try a dark ale)
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup apple cider
  • 1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning


Heat apple cider in a saucepan over a medium heat. Stir in honey and mix until smooth. Removed from heat and stir beer and canjun seasoning. While the marinade is still warm enough to keep the honey runny, but not hot, inject into turkey. Remember to inject very small amounts in many placed.
