    Got a 9 lb pork butt going on the smoker this morning. I used my normal dalmation rub and loaded up the chip tray with pecan and maple. This time I decided to try the Chris Lilly injection for a new twist. A pic of the rubbed and injected butt is below and I'll update with progress pics as it goes.

    Injected hey? Never tried that. I should go over to home depot and grab myself a set up for that.
    I'm doing a 8+ lb butt tomorrow for a lady at work.

    Will be nice to have it come out juicy.. good luck! 🍀

    5 hours in, MES is cruising at 275F and the butt is sitting pretty at 155F. Prepping for the stall and mouth is starting to water.

    What kind of injector do you have? Is it one of those $20 stainless ones from the grilling section at the hardware store?

    It's all plastic except for the needle. I got it in the housewares section of Walmart for about 5 bucks.

    Butt is finished and pulled with KC style sauce. I grabbed it off the smoker with an IT of 203 and the cook took right at 9 hours. Pics of the finished product below:
