try injecting the bird with juice just before cooking. I don't brine anymore.
I did about a dozen turkeys last year and was very pleased with the results. Run you cooker hotter like Biscuit does hear (I prefer 275 -300).
Our favorite last year was injected with a 50/50 mix of cranberry and pineapple juice, rubbed under the skin with Yardbird and then glazed at the end with a cranberry pineapple glaze. It was lightly smoked with a little apple chunks.
It was so good the wife asked that I cook that recipe for our t-day fest last year.
