Inject after brine?

Should I inject my turkey with marinade after brining? I wasn't sure if one technique replaced the other.

    You could if you use a saltless injection, but I don't think you will find much benefit...especially if you flavored your brine. A saltless rub or paste under the skin should do you well. One think I like to do is to mix up some roast garlic, pepper, olive oil, and some seasonings, and rub that under the skin. Lots of possibilities.[p]I say skip the injection. Just my opinion though.
    Merry Christmas!

    Ches,[p]Is what is to be injected different than the brine, yes. If the same, no.[p]Puj

    I agree with Nature Boy. I have never had much success with injecting a turkey. A paste under the skin after brining works great. My 2 cents.
