I agree, I will never smoke a turkey unbrined again, there is a diference of night and day.
Here is the injection I use after brining.
1 Package Zesty Italian Dressing mix
1/4 tsp Ground Cloves
1 tsp Cajun Spice (Louisiana Cajun Seasoning)
1 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
1 1/2 tsp Celery Seed
1 1/2 tsp Pickling spice
1 Tbsp Dark Brown Sugar
4 Tbsp melted non salted Butter
2 C Apple Cider
Place every thing but the butter and cider in a spice grinder and grind fine. Heat cider, add ground spices, and melted butter
