Smoked an 8 lb butt today for a small party tomorrow afternoon celebrating a close friend receiving his masters degree. Injected overnight with 3/8 cup apple juice, 1/4 cup water, 1/4 cup white sugar, 1/16 cup table salt and 1 Tbsp worcestershire which is Chris Lilly's pork butt injection with altered measurements. Rubbed overnight with Plowboys yardbird rub as well. Smoked at 265 for a little over 9 hours to an IT of 200-203 in various spots of the butt. Rested for 2 hours wrapped in foil in a cooler and then pulled into chunks so i can reheat tomorrow in a crock pot and not have mush. This was my first time injecting and smoking over 235 deg on a butt. I loved the time saving with the higher temp along with the fat rendering better. The injection added a bit of flavor but not much. Pics below, thanks for looking!
