yeah, I'm gonna inject with a mix of vin and apple juice. I'll use my own rub. Talked a couple of folks who were in it last year, and almost everyone used a vinegar sauce (the mustard sauce is more prevalent around Columbia.)
However, this contest is now using certified judges, so it'll be folks from all over the region who are very experienced in different styles.
I know a lot of people add pineapple juice in their injection, but it concerns me that it may flavor the pork more towards a Pacific type pork, or Hawaii style. I'm shooting for authentic eastern Carolina style.
Probably most important is to just do my normal thing so I can figure out where I stand before I start changing things. :biggrin:
