Injection Liquid

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I have been searching thru the posts and while many folks reference injecting a pork butt nowhere do I see what they have used. I am doing 2 on Friday and would like to try one injected. What are you using?
post #2 of 13


here's one i use. It's sweet and spicy.
1/4 cup molasses
1 1/2 cup apple juice
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 shots bourbon or dark rum

Heat apple juice and rum add brown sugar and molasses. bring to a slow boil stirring while heating. reduce heat to simmer and add cayanne to taste.
Let cool and inject.
Lil tip: wrap the meat in saran wrap before injecting. This keeps the injection in and on the meat and off of you.

I use a product called FAB-P. Mix with Apple and Pineapple juice instead of water (50-50 mix). Works REALLY well.

I have heard in here about injecting with honey and stuff. But I think I would go with Eman's or Chisoxjim's recipe cause I am.

Anything that compliments the meat usually works. The recipes above sound great, but it can also be as simple as injecting some Guiness or a mix of apple juice and your rub.

I do like the suggestions posted above and might try one out on my next butt. Thanks guys!

thats pretty much what i do

Just be careful if/when using pineapple or papaya juice. They contain some enzymes that are used as a meat tenderizer and might turn your meat "mealy."

I am not much for mesuring but this what I have used many times with Pork and beef. Chicken or Beef Stock for the pork and just beef for beef. Some Woshester sause Teraki marinade with pinaple. Allspice and cajun seasoning with a splash of olive oil. Mix well in a blender. inject some and put the rest in a spray bottle to srpitz and mix in a bit for a finnish sause

I like using the Cajun Injector Marinades, they have lots of different flavors to chose from...

We like the Hot N Spicy Butter, the Jalapeno Butter and Kathryn likes the Roasted Garlic & Herb Butter and the Turkey Supreme...

Been thinking of trying the Honey Praline Ham Kit to see what it is like...
