Smoked Turkey Rub
FOR THE RUB
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 2 tablespoons onion powder
- 1 tablespoon paprika
- 2 teaspoons garlic powder
- 2 teaspoons kosher salt
- 2 teaspoons white pepper
- 1 teaspoon powdered ginger
- 1/2 teaspoon powdered sage
A wet rub holds better to the outside of your bird and also aids in moisture retention.
Mix all dry ingredients together.
Dust the inner cavity of the turkey with one tablespoon of the dry ingredients.
Mix the remaining dry ingredients with the vegetable oil to make a wet rub, or paste.
Gently separate the skin from the meat of the bird. Massage the wet rub into the meat underneath the skin. Be careful. Do not completely remove the skin from the bird.
Hot TipWhen finished, use toothpicks to hold the skin in place.
Use all remaining wet rub to coat the outside of the bird.
