I am planning to smoke a turkey before Thanksgiving. There is much written in these forums about brining poultry, and I have brined chicken myself with good results. I have found less info about injecting birds before smoking. For those of you have have tried either or both methods, don't they basically accomplish the same purpose, which is to infuse moisture and flavor into the bird? If one were to brine a bird, would it add any benefit to inject it as well, or would that be overkill? I guess I'm asking everyone's opinion about either/both methods, and compare the results you get.
