I am also looking for guidance on whether to Rub/Inject or do both. If an injection is preferred, I could use some recipes as I am only used to injecting my deep fried turkeys.
Many thanks toyou all and I look forward to sharing my experience along the way.
Ideally you would do both. The injection is more of a luxury that the competition cooks use and is not mandatory for backyard cooking. The rub is a different matter. You always want some kind of rub. I would forgo the injection to keep things simple, but I would never forgo the rub.
