Injections for pork, I just don't get it, Most balk at enhanced pork from the store, Why would you want to pump pork in the first place? Someone please explain this to me.

Again Pigs, I don't get it either. I don't marinade pork or inject. I was merely responding to a request from a fellow board member not offering endorsements.

If you pump it yourself you can control what flavors and the amount that goes into the meat.

Guess this is like the whole sauce or not to sauce thing, I like the taste of pork, Guess I'll never understand it.

Enhanced meat in the store is just a salt solution to help the meat retain mosture when cooked. Injections are usually to add flavor and at the same time they can help retain mosture.

Use them, don't use them. Do whatever you want to do.

I've injected butts and was happy with the results, you can still taste the meat it just adds that little something to it, kind of like adding a little something to it after its been pulled.
