Default Injection for a turkey

For those of you who inject turkeys, what advice do you have for someone who has never injected? I think I am going to brine one turkey and inject for the other but injection is totally new to me.

What good turkey injection recipes are recommended? When injecting, what are the basics (how much liquid to inject, how many injections per square inch, where in the meat is the injection best used (close to bone, in breast meat, near surface, etc?), and how long do you let the injection sit before smoking?

Thanks! I really appreciate all the great advice on here.

I'm getting ready to inject 3 birds tomorrow AM. Will be my first photo post here.
- can of juice (I like apricot, but apple's fine too)
- 1/4 lb stick of butter
- too much garlic powder
- little salt
- pinch of cayenne.

Now. I brine and inject (which is frowned upon for reasons that make sense to me). But nobody complains about the finished product.

You know, I have had fabulous turkeys the last 2 years that I have smoked without injection. I think it really has to do with the brining and the cooking environment. I typically cook turkeys on my large BGE about 260 for 6-7 hours. I spritz with EVOO about every hour and they come out awesome and moist.
Just for completeness, I do not put anything in the turkey cavity.

Boy, the EVOO spritz sounds like a great idea.
I may steal that from you in the morning.

There are already a lot of mixed and off the shelf products you can get and Buttertalk seems to have a wide array of choices you could use for injecting to your turkey.

I suggest though that you shy away from the type of injection they give because they do tend to go on the very slim needle side, which makes it hard when some sort of strand blocks the way. I suggest injecting on different layers or depths as well and not one layer only.

Only advise I can give is don't inject butter if your going to deep fry a turkey. Butter has water and water expands and creates steam and steam ain't good in oil.
