injections for turkey

Planning to smoke a turkey this week, brining 24 hrs prior. Curious on others experience and opinion on also doing some injection, particularly in the breast meat. Is it worthwhile? If so, other than store bought, any suggestions on recipes for the injection?

    I use coconut oil in my injector and inject prior to cooking.  Family and guests love the suble flavor of coconuts.

  • Don't do it as a matter of course but when I used to do them on the oven I would poach herbs and garlic in butter and white wine. Strain and cool a bit then inject.
