I have an injector that I use to place seasoned butter (sage, or poultry seasoning and seasoned salt) into the meat.  Gets rave reviews :)

I always buy a Butterball!  It is stuffed and roasted in my Nesco.  Tom comes out moist and delicious every time!

I LOVEmy Nesco Roaster!!! Mine has a motor and a fan that can be added to make it like a convection oven.
I think it gets more use at Thanksgiving and Christmas than any other time of year.  It gets loaned out once in a while.
I had a very small oven in the old house and the Nesco was the only way I could get everything done so I got it out of necessity but it was used even what it was not necessary just because I loved the way everything turned out.  I trust my Christmas (Prime) Rib Roast to the Nesco.
I used it recently to do a huge pan of roasted vegetables.

If you are thinking of doing a brine just make sure the turkey is not pre seasoned as the pre seasoned ones have salt added and a brine will just add to the saltiness.

I have started adding 1 or 2 cups of cranberries to my stuffing.  The cranberries cut the richness and add a bit of zing to the stuffing.

For the past few years, I have brined my turkey. But my son who is in the Navy is home for Thanksgiving this year, and he has requested turkey in the turkey fryer. It's good just the way it is, so I don't inject any marinades in it.

We stuff ours and roast it in the oven.
