Butt injection question

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I got an injector for my birthday and haven't had a chance to use it. I think Tuesday is the Smoking day!

Well Butts are on sale for $1.49/lb, which is pretty good out here in the boonies.

I want to make one for eating and will smoke to internal 145 and use Dutch's mahogany sauce.

The other 2 or three will be for pulled pork.

Any suggestions for a mix for the injector, and about how much per pound of meat?

Recently I have been making a marinade. of beer, WS and spices, sucking it up into the injector and injecting it into the meat while it marinates. Working out well.

I use several different things but I always keep some "Cajun Injector" marinades on hand as well for quick and easy. Garlic and Herb is pretty good

What are you going to do with it at 145*?

The cajun injecters are what i use, avoid the needle that are open tipped, they will plug

Cajun injector wins my vote too. I like the Creole Butter.

Inject or not...in my opinion...butts need to cook longer than that. Pork loin is what youre lookin for.

thought I read For just slicing up to go to 145. Should I go to 165? The ones I will pull will take up over 200.

I think that what you read was for pork loins
When we make canadian bacon for slicing to fry later it's 140/145 .
Safe temp for pork to eat is a MIN. of 160 .
Usuall take my butts to 185 or higher.

145 is safe

according to the food safty class 145 is safe to eat
you will still be able to slice if you go up to 165 175 and you may "feel" safer hope this helps

as for injections try bbq sause if you have a favorite make a marinade you like and put it in the blinder
cajun injector is always easy and good
