Injections are primarily for moisture and secondarily for flavor. Keep your injection simple and try to complement your rub and any sauce. Oil can help moisture but should be used carefully. I don't use oil in my pork or brisket injections, but do use it (mixed with a tinge of garlic, onion, and a little salt) to assure chicken tenderness without the mess of brining.
