I brined last Thanksgiving, using Alton Brown's (food network) recipe. It turned out very well, although i did do a practice run a few weeks prior just to make sure it worked out. I have never tried injecting, although I do remember a tip someone posted about wrapping the bird in saran before you inject to make it less messy.
Beer can turkey...better get a "fawdy".
Or a Foster's...Australian for Beer!
I've brined, I've injected, I've brined and injected and I think that one might have been the best.

I like to brine my poultry (chicken & turkey) While I do like to inject beef and pork, I don't the birds.
Injecting would not hurt the cook IMO...so do it if you want.
I like to use apple and pecan for a light smoke on the Turkey.
A perfectly cooked turkey will be quite juicey and delicious on the Egg...ice the breast and don't overcook!

Are you guys buying Kosher Turkeys or something? I know the typical Butterball type turkeys are already injected with a solution. I don't know if that matters or not but I just figured getting a turkey that wasn't messed with is probably better. Thoughts?
