Absolutely WONDERFUL! Great on Chicken too! The Juiciest bird I've ever made!! I use it on whole chickens before I smoke them too!



Made the turkey really juicy and you can't even taste the soy sauce



I did this overnight to my turkey, which I then cooked in my big slow cooker. I also added some peppercorns, and more spices to the slow cooker. Moist and delicious!!!
