The last turkey I smoked, I didn't have time to brine so I injected it with the same creole butter that I inject before I fry a turkey. It was outstanding.

Several years ago another member posted up a recipe for a soy / maple brine. It's similar to Smokin Oakies but with a few different ingredients. I've been using it ever since.

All the suggestions above are great. I'll add one more. Oakridge BBQ's game changer brine is pretty dang good IMO.

I posted here about Smokin Oldies Brine a time or two and was a big fan of it, but I like my results better by using a basic salt brine of 1 cup Kosher to every 4 quarts of water.

Let the flavor of the turkey come through and let the salt (only) enhance it. Smokin Oldies adds a lot of sugar and vinegar to the brine; do you really want to taste those flavors in your turkey?? I don't.

I tried both recipes side by side and made my decision. I like salt only better.

I and many others like the combined flavors that Smokin' Okies's brine delivers.
I can honestly say I have never experienced a bad tasting bird and we brine a lot of birds. I have however gotten rave reviews on our birds from everyone that has tried them.
In my opinion if you are looking for a flavored brine it will be hard to beat, if you just want a moist turkey then use a basic salt water brine.
