injecting my butt?


Joined Jun 2, 2007
i have a pork butt just under 6 pounds i want to use an injectable marinade and a dry rub. i am going to put the rub on and let it rest overnight, not sure if it would be best to inject now and let rest also or to inject right before smoking?

Hi Eric -

I've done it both ways. If your using garlic (can't imagine why not) it'll get deeper into the meat over night! If you've got time try it - I love it that way.

Injecting or brining really increases the flavor and letting it sit longer will let that flavor spread out into the meat, let it sit 24-48 hrs what ever and it will only be better, id use the creol garlic butter with pork
one edge of the family is from the east and uses alot of cajon and its really good too but thats a speacial blend of spices i havent gained yet
