I would like to get a second opinion on this or even some ideas on what to inject it with?
I'll be smoking this butt tomorrow at 5am.
Just wanted to try something new. I have never injected a butt before.
You better REALLY LOVE Vinegar if you plan to inject straight AC Vinegar. The finished product will be quite sour. Many whom inject mix Apple Juice/Cider with AC Vinegar. I would start with 3 to 1 and adjust from there. You can also add Brown Sugar, Molasses, Herbs and Spices, or some of your Rub, bring to a boil, strain through a Coffee Filter, cool to at least 40°F and inject...JJ
Yes the Chef has it right, straight cider vinegar, wow, sour or what. I do as he says, apple juice and cider vinegar about 80% apple juice. Adds a wonder flavour, do I inject, sometimes, but mostly just marinade, depending on the piece of meat, 24 hours to 10 days.
Why don't you look up an eastern North Carolina BBQ sauce, see how you like it.
I got that covered...JJ
JJ's Finishing Sauce
2C Apple Cider Vinegar
2T Worcestershire Sauce or more to taste
1/4C Brown Sugar
1T Smoked Paprika
2 tsp Granulated Garlic
2 tsp Granulated Onion
2 tsp Fine Grind Black Pepper
1 tsp Celery Salt
1 tsp Cayenne Pepper or Chipotle powder. Add more if you like Heat.
1/2 tsp Grnd Allspice
Combine all and whisk well. Let rest, at room temp, 30 minutes for the flavors to meld together.
Add directly to Pulled Pork or serve as a Dip.
