Yeah, put whatever you want in there.
I use kosher salt and added different things over the years. After I started injecting I started leaving most things out though.
I get it in there with the injection and I try something different every year and experiment with chickens throughout the year to get an idea.
I've sliced up oranges and threw them in, apples, brown sugar, bay leaves, sage, onions.. Anything that will get flavor in there.

Brined one for the first time; spatchcocked and smoked for 3 hours.

Tasty.

This years brined Turkey was the best I've ever made. Each and every piece was moist, tasty and succulent.

So good in fact that there was barely any turkey left!

Granted, it was a small one but it was destroyed in no time flat.
