Apple Cider...

Any thoughts on if this would be ok to inject in to a pork butt? Thought about giving it a whirl for a party tonight.

I have done it in the past with hard cider, it was great.

I've done that a couple of times. It was really good and just added a bit of moisture. I cant say the flavor was sweet, but it was good and everyone loved it.

Pork + Apple (anything!) = Heavenly.

Also, ya can add some of your rub into the liquid for the injection. Just make sure the undesolved particles are ground small enough to fit through the needle.

I injected apple cider and Italian dressing (1/2 and ˝) and won 1st place in a cook off last year. The vinegar in the apple cider and dressing just tenderizers the meat… it’s a heavenly combo I learned from the “big red smokers”

I make a brine that uses apple juice and soak all the butts I smoke, have tried it several ways and everyone seems to love the ones I brine so I just keep doing it. Makes for some extra work but it's worth the effort.

I'd bet it would work great Greg! Did you do it? Did it work out okay for you? Pictures?
