How do I brine, inject, AND rub a to-be-fried turkey, and do I want to?

I am going to deep-fry a turkey for the first time this Thanksgiving, and have been reading up on the best way to prepare the bird. I have seen many recommendations for brining, injecting, and rubbing, but when I look at instructions for those methods, they don't seem to go hand in hand. Can anyone help clarify how these methods are used together?

Should I inject , then brine, then let the turkey dry, then rub, then fry? And when should I do each of these things (brining recipes suggest 10-12 hours before cook time, while rub/injection recipes suggest 24 hours in advance).

Thanks for any help you can provide!
