I am hoping this will be good info for both Newbies and a refresher for the experienced. I know there have been threads started on this in the past but I can't seem to find them. A quick run down. I am going to be smoking 5-10 birds for people at work before Thanksgiving then will freeze them and they will reheat them on Thanksgiving day for their meal bird. They are going to be picking up the bird and dropping them off at my place. I was planning on brining them and smoking them. I know in the past some birds (A lot of them) are pre injected at the factory with a solution and the rule of thumb kind of was if they are pre injected at the factory it doesn't do anything if you brine them since they can't take on any more of the moisture. Am I remembering that right????? Was hoping to spark up some debate on that and see if that is true or if people think the bird will still take on moisture and flavor and help in the overall taste/juiciness of the bird once it is smoked. Or if anyone can find those past threads just post them on here. I am going to keep looking for them. I swear I even started on like this last year but I can't find it under my created posts. If I can find a non injected bird I will buy it but from past experience around here they are all injected at the factory. If the bird won't take on any of the brine it may be better to just inject them then smoke them. Lets hear your thoughts.
