Injecting pork butt with apple cider vinegar?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
A buddy of mine tells me that injecting a pork butt with apple cider vinegar is really good.

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.

Gotcha, don't use straight AC vinegar.

What about a dipping sauce using apple cider vinegar?

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.

Stay away from injecting vinegar. It can make the pork a bit on the mushy side.
