    Hey all, I'm smoking a couple butts this weekend. I wanted to try something a little different than an applejuice injection with Jeff's rub. Has anyone tried injecting with Coca-Cola?

    I did it once with Cherry Coke and another time with Dr. Pepper.  They came out great, I spritzed them as well with Dr. Pepper and some added spices.  I haven't tried Jeffs Rub before with this kind of injection, but I bet they come out good.

    Best of luck if you go for it.
  3. I use Coke all the time mixed with a little bourbon and apple juice. I inject it and use it for spritzing. Works great.

    I tried the Coca-cola injection on 2 butts this weekend. I normally do not do any injection, but I tried the coke injection on these. I have to say, I couldn't taste any difference at all, subtle or not. By the way, the pulled pork, after I added SoFlaQuers finishing sauce, was still delicious, so I was not disappointed.
