    I was playing around with a few injection ideas the other day and went with the one below. Oh my goodness was it good. The pork had a nice sweetness to it but had a lot of natural pork flavor. Let me know what you guys think

    I modified Chris Lillys Injection

    1 cup apple juice

    1/2 cup water

    1/2 cup white sugar

    1/4 cup salt

    2 tablespoon lemonade

    Cooked at 250 until 165 IT then wrapped in 3 layers of heavy duty foil very tightly. Cooked until IT of 190. Once it hit 190 IT I injected again with a mix of apple juice, peach syrup (from can of peaches), and a touch of lemonade. I heated this up very hot in a microwave first. Continues to cook until 200 IT. I think I have found my injection from here on in.

    Never would have thought to inject it again once it got close to the 200 threshold.  God I love this site and everyone's crazy good ideas!   Will definitely put this on my list to try!
     
  3. That sounds very interesting. I can see the lemonade giving it a nice tang.

    I've been using a recipe similar to that except I use soy sauce and Worchestershire instead of the lemonade.

    1 cup Apple Juice

    1 cup Water

    1/2 cup Dark Brown Sugar

    1/2 cup Salt

    1 TBS Soy Sauce

    1 TBS Worcestershire Sauce

    Now, you didn't specify...did you use fresh lemonade, or something like Country Time mix?

    Also, I wonder how a couple of tablespoons of Country Time lemonade mix would work in the rub?

    I used fresh lemonade from a small bottle. I am liking the idea of using it in the rub. I dont know how well it would work but I am def. going to find out.
     
  5. Yes, please let us know how it works. In the meantime, I'm gonna try it too and see how we like it. Thanks for the idea!
