    Smoked an 8 lb butt today for a small party tomorrow afternoon celebrating a close friend receiving his masters degree.  Injected overnight with 3/8 cup apple juice, 1/4 cup water, 1/4 cup white sugar, 1/16 cup table salt and 1 Tbsp worcestershire which is Chris Lilly's pork butt injection with altered measurements.  Rubbed overnight with Plowboys yardbird rub as well.  Smoked at 265 for a little over 9 hours to an IT of 200-203 in various spots of the butt.  Rested for 2 hours wrapped in foil in a cooler and then pulled into chunks so i can reheat tomorrow in a crock pot and not have mush.  This was my first time injecting and smoking over 235 deg on a butt.  I loved the time saving with the higher temp along with the fat rendering better.  The injection added a bit of flavor but not much. Pics below, thanks for looking!

    Looks good. Be careful with Injecting or Brining then using commercial rubs. They are very salty and can ruin the meat...JJ

    Figured, thats why i cut the salt way down on the injection.

    Is that a camera on top of your smoker?  Nice setup and the results look great, I'm going to cook a 15 lb butt this weekend on my Hasty Bake and will try your injection.  I've never injected pork before, I like the natural meat taste but I'm going to give it a try.

    It's a foscam 8910 ip camera on the smoker.  I generally use it to keep an eye on my dog while my wife and I are at work but it comes in handy with the smoker as well.  You can view the cam via pc, android, or iphone and is a quick way for me to ensure my amnps is still smoking.  As for the injection i take no credit as it comes from Chris Lilly.  This was the first time i injected a pork butt and while the difference was subtle i did find a slight improvement in taste.  As mentioned by Chef Jimmy be very careful with the salt in the injection.  Let us know how it turns out!
  8. I'm curious on this camera, so do you have a camera system at the house this hook into or does it just use your WiFi? 

    Thanks,  Michael

    Works over wifi.  Very easy to setup to view on your home network.  To view outside your network requires a bit more setup.
