Forgot to inject before I st smoking my butt- can Inject before I wrap it?
post #2 of 10

I have found no need to inject pork butts.  They smoke up nicely without injecting.  I assume you rubbed the butt down.  I pull my butts at 165 wrap in foil and back on smoker until 203-205 and into an ice chest for an hour or so before pulling.

Are you planning to pull and wrap in foil?  If so, the time is getting close.  Not everyone does this but I have found my family enjoys it best this way.  It also serves to conserve internal juices.  I am like David, I bet hubby does not notice it wasn't injected this time.  It will be outstanding in any case.

Looks great! I too vote no injection. Never needed it on a butt. Just make sure and wrap in two layers of foil with a little liquid like apple juice or whatever. wrap in towells and stash in a cooler for an hour. It will be soooooo juicy!
