Injecting flavor (w/Nesco)
I used my Nesco last night for the 1st time, cooking a large roasting chicken. Thought I'd use it as a trial run before the turkey next week. The meat came out juicy and very tender - but lacking in flavor. I roasted it with vegetables on the bottom of the pan and rubbed the chicken with salt, pepper, poultry seasoning. I brushed some melted butter, Kitchen Bouquet and seasoning salt on top.
I'm wondering how to inject flavor into the turkey. In the past, I've filled the cavity with fresh herbs but the flavor doesn't come through, IMHO. I've seen those hypo-needles/flavor injectors and wonder if anyone has experience with those - or if there are any other ideas out there.... Thanks!
