There has to be a TON of injections out there.
What do you use?
In the past I've done a mixture of low sodium chicken stock along with a healthy amount of unsalted butter. A nice amount of S&P plus other spices to taste doesn't hurt either.

I'm going to do 6 hours in the brine and 8 hours air drying in the fridge in order to get crispy skin.
