Injecting pork butts

I'm sure this has been brought up here before.

Not just butts, but any type of meat.

Puff you can certainly inject your butts, no problem alot of people do. I've done it before and didn't notice a substantial difference, just my .02 though. Make sure those butts you got are not enhanced before you go injecting, you may end up making them super salty.

Look at the package, if they say "tender and juicy", "self basting" or the "sodium content is about 100mg" they're enhanced.

You might think that a guy with 1,040 posts would know what enhanced means. Oh well, maybe another 1,000 posts he'll catch up.

All he's been doing is enhancing his post count.

I also use Lilly's marinade. Makes a pretty good product. I use John Willingham's marinade as well with good results. Plain old apple cider or juice is common. Look through your Wally and find the hispanic aisle. There is a good selection of nectars. Mixed with some other liquid like ginger ale can be fun too.


Good Q!
