Newbie from VA with quick question

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Been lurking for a while without introducing myself. I'm new to smoking and recently purchased a Brinkman gas smoker from Home Depot. So far I've smoked some fish (salmon and whiting), a small brisket and a small pork picnic. Mostly everything has been OK but... well I have lots to learn.
Tomorrow I'm doing a Pork Butt to pull. Tonight I've rubbed it down with "Meathead's Magic Dust" and also injected it with some Apple Juice with a little garlic in it. Wrapped it up and put it in the fridge till I get up at about 4:00 AM to start the smoke. That’s about when my dear wife said, “are you sure you can inject it this early?” I got this deer in the headlight look and said “yeah sure” while thinking in my head “I haven’t got a clue”.
Obviously I can’t take the injection out, did I screw up or is this going to be OK?
Thanks so much for your help.
Gordon
Hopefully I've attached a Qveiw of the start.

Culp,
You'll be fine! Apple juice goes very good with ribs, I and garlic is good on anything! Be sure and share some Q-View with us tomorrow.

Yep you will be fine. I inject my butts the night before and then also inject a little more right before the smoke as well sometimes. Either way you will be fine.

Sounds like you've got your answer PDT_Armataz_01_34.gif

Oh, and make sure you don't tell the Wife you were unsure...man fire and meat, never wrong and never ask for directions, well unless you are lost and the GPS doesn't work PDT_Armataz_01_03.gif

How to post Qview to Forum:

When you uploading to Photobucket I always use the Large IMG setting, 640 x 480 it is a nice size...

Everyone here enjoys seeing the Qview so be sure to post plenty of pics...

Large ones that us old people with bad eyes can see.
