Please help with dry brining and marinade injection!

Basmoth | Nov 26, 201411:03 AM

I'll be making my first turkey this year, and I've decided to dry brine it for 2 days prior to cooking.

However, I've also chanced upon the idea of a marinade injection to give the turkey more depth of flavor. I haven't seen a recipe advising to marinade meats for that long, which is why I'm wondering if I should do the injection at the same time I dry brine the turkey.

Or, do you think it'll be best to just wait and only inject the marinade 12 hours before the cooking time as per the recipe's instructions?
