Beer Can Turkey Recipe

2 -12 ounce cans or a 24 ounce beer can
1 9 to 10 pound thawed Turkey
2 tablespoons smoked paprika
3 tablespoons granulated garlic
2 teaspoons sea salt
1 teaspoon cumin
1 tablespoon black pepper
4 garlic cloves
2 fresh lemons cut in half

Mix all the seasonings together in a bowl.
Thaw and clean turkey.  Place the Turkey in a large foil pan and pour the beer of the Turkey stuffed with lemons and garlic. Sprinkle with half the seasonings then cover. Marinate for two days in the refrigerator.

Remove the lemons and take out of the pan.

Baking method:  cook in oven 1/2 hour per pound on 350 degree hot oven I like to use a oven bag and place 1/2 the juices in the bag with 1 stick of butter and bake it with the rest of the seasonings. 

Grilling method:  you can use a beer can sitter using a small beer can and sprinkle the rest of the seasoning on the turkey. Grill until juices run clear normally takes around  3 hours using a thermometer that register 185 degree heat. That will need to rest 20 minutes before cutting after done.

Oil less Fryer: I inject my Turkey using a Turkey injector from the dollar store using more beer. Rub the seasonings and use the oil less fryer to manufacturer instructions.

Deep Fryer: same as above.
