i brined once. didn't like it. so i just cook the bird with some herb butter under the skin, s&p on the outside and in the cavity and some smoke. thats it. that lets me and others to add whatever if wanted without overwhelming the whole bird.
again, i ice down the breasts first and always have very juicy breast meat.

I like to wet brine like for the same reason as others have stated. If you add the right mix of salt and spices it does the trick just fine.

I've never brined. Marinated cut pieces overnight or longer yes, but no brining.

Always with whole chickens and sometimes with turkeys I make a mix 50/50 sprite and BH TR and stretch skin away from the meat and poor what ever I can get in. Makes for the moistest bird and the flavor is great. Not sweet.

Well - I generally brine, but probably for another wrong reason. I find the bird is more forgiving in terms of getting the dark meat cooked well without over-cooking the white meat.
