    I have done even parts of apple juice and cherry dr. pepper with my rub, inject, smoke with apple and use soflaquers finishing sauce.  Everytime I try something new and this last time (first time injecting) was the best so far.  I want to try that SoCo Cherry and Cherry Dr. Pepper next time.

  4. I have tried several mixtures of injections but I always go back to how my dad did it years ago in a modified trash can, no injection at all, just poured some Schlitz (I use Bud) beer over them while they cooked away.

    Other than boiling brats in beer, just pouring beer over meat is a waste of beer to me and doesn't sound very appetizing.

    I know that Famous Dave got his start in Chicago smoking meats in a modified trash can, so I guess that it can work.

    so far i did injection with cherry Dr pepper. a few friends and relatives are raving about my pulled pork. as a control to the experiment, i gave my pork( no sauce) to a few friends who are finicky. i'm waiting to hear back from them. they do pulled pork a lot. but i think it was a success. next time i will save the drippings and make an AU jus
