    So I am doing 2 pork butts for Thanksgiving, and I want to try an injection for the first time.  I was in the grocery store and bought a jug of Salted Caramel Apple Cider.  Looks good, haven't tasted it yet, but would something like this make a good injection and mop?  really interested in trying this, but worried the caramel flavor might not complement the pork....

    Thoughts?

    What would you add to it?  Apple Cider Vinegar?

    I have never tasted that so I don't know for sure but since caramel is burned sugar it might be really sweet. It could go well with pork if you are going for a sweeter finished product.

    Thanks!  I love to have the pork itself as sweet and spicy as I can get it.  I usually stir in some JJ's Finishing Sauce before serving to give it a little more heat and some tang.
