  1. I plan on doin a Butt tomorrow. I've done a few but I have never injected one so today i got the cajun injector with creole butter. does this go well with pork butt?

    I'm going to inject tonight and put it on the smoker early tomorrow morning

    I use the injector it comes with, but dont use the injection marinade(ill use that for chicken, etc.).

    I prefer some fruit juice, rub, etc in my injection.

    good luck
  4. Creole Butter injection? hmmm? sounds damn interesting? i would like the see the finish product. Post some pics when you done..
  5. no cam at the moment..I'll have my girlfriend take some pics on her phone when she gets here tomorrow.

    I could always make my own injection with my rub and some apple juice but that creole butter sounds damn good

    I used some on a loin, should be ok. I have the Jalapeno injection for a loin for tomorrow.
  7. What about apple sauce? Has anyone used that before?
  8. that don't sound half bad. however you might have to thin it out with some juice to keep the injector from clogging up

    I like the creole butter on poultry (turkery and chicken). Go with a good ol' apple juice type injection on the pork.

    for a "cheapie" injector my last one lasted quite a while. I just broke it on the last butt so I have to get a new one tomorrow for the butts I am doing Sunday.

    I injected a small one the other day. A figative from sausage making about 3 lbs. Used the following:

    1 c apple juice
    1 Tbs molassas
    2 Tbs brown sugar
    1 Tbs Wors. Sauce
    1 Tbs hot suace (tobasco, La, or Crystal)
    1 Tbs salt
    1/2 Tbs ground pepper
    1/4 cup beer

    Came out real nice even though I didn't have time to let it sit overnight.

    I've used gallons of the Creole Butter. It would be great with your pork butt. For beef, I like to use Creole garlic. There aren't many I haven't tried (from Cajuninjector).

    It sounds like a pretty good idea to me. I would like to hear some success stories but I am smoking a butt this weekend and I do have some cajun butter in the pantry so maybe I'll be the guinne pig on this one.

    Creole Butter is good stuff! I've used it on pork, chicken, turkey and have always had good results.

    I read the ingredients on that stuff and it said "Proplyn Glycol" aint that anti-freeze? Sorry I make my own marinades from scratch. Butter,garlic,lemon juice and smoked salt work pretty good for me. JMHO.
  20. yeah they're feeding us anti-freeze [​IMG]

    it's goin in the butt tomorrow and anyone who don't like it might get real coolant in their pork next time [​IMG]
