Discard the apples prior to carving. I personally do not foil my bird until the very end. Then I will wrap it and set it in cooler for an hour or so prior to carving. Without a doubt, the most flavorful and moist turkey you will ever eat. You will get calls to smoke more turkeys if anyone trys it.
I'll have to try the AJ concentrate injection. I like to put an apple, an onion, a cut up carrot and a stalk of celery into the cavity. The apple and the aromatics give the meat a nice flavor.
