1 cup apple juice
1 cup water
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 cup salt
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

Makes enough to inject (2) 8-10 lb pork butts. Inject and let sit in fridge overnight.

I did this and smoked early the next morning and I am not changing the recipe. It was fantastic.

Results look great. How salty does the finished meat taste?

That's very close to Chris Lilly's Pork Injection, but he uses 1/4 cup of salt. This is a bit salty for me, but I use a finishing rub and a tick of seasoned salt as I'm pulling. Chris adds a light vinegar based sauce as he pulls butts.

That is very close. I might have to try that one. Thanks!
