I do it (inject) for the reason you stated above, and I've done more than one side-by-side tests (injected and uninjected) to taste and see if there are any other differences. There are. I find mine to be slightly more moist (but I also foil; dare I say it) and you can taste the apple juice, slightly, and by putting the rub in the injection it delivers the flavors all around; everything tastes just a little bit "barkish".
