Thanks for any advice.

I only brine the leaner cuts of pork.

I honestly have never tried it. Kind of, "gilding the Lily ", Butts are so moist and tender that I never saw a need. If it is large, 7-8Lb, cut it in half and try both methods...JJ

I have not done a lot of pork butts and have never brined one.  I have injected and got great results.  ChefJimmyJ posted a great idea above though.
