    Does anyone know what vinegar adds to pork injection. New to injection used butchers with apple juice this weekend worked well.

    I use vinegar in my finishing sauce,  it cuts the fat a bit and adds that tart flavor to the sweetness of the apple juice.  I don't inject so never used it in an injection.   

    Welcome to the forum

              Have not used finishing sauce just rub and injection.

    In addition to that tangy bite, as Al said, it cuts the fatty taste and lightens up the final product. The tartness also gets your salivary glands going, which increases the amount of enzymes in your mouth, which help to break down the meat as you chew it, leading to the perception of more tender meat.  In addition, I feel the acid actually does help break down the connective tissue.
