I have 9 turkeys in a brine that are going onto my smoker today which will be given to several different people and they will reheat it on Thanksgiving day. They will place the bird in a pan with a rack and add some broth to the bottom and cover in foil which will hopefully keep the bird nice and juicy. My question is do I dare inject the birds today after they are smoked and cooled to give the bird some extra moisture when heating up on Thanksgiving day? My only concern is once I start injecting the bird after it is cooked and cooled I am going to let out some of the natural juices that are already in the bird with all of my needle holes. I would like to give it some extra moisture for when they reheat. I figured a nice mixture of butter and chicken broth would be nice. What are you thoughts? Man its almost time to get these birds in the smoker. I better get rolling.
