    ive marinated our turkey in beer for many years. just brushing the beer on slowly.

    now we use other stuff (forgot what it was) , but some years we still use beer. it tastes good! trust me.

    In Soviet Russia, turkey soak you in beer!

    Sorry... this situation really cried out for that.

    Heh...

    I think a liquid has to be like 80 proof or somewhere around in there before it will burn. ;) So no, beer won't burn.

    You could baste your turkey in Everclear for a week, but you aren't going to get drunk after you cook it and eat it...... lol

    Alcohol = teh low boiling point.
