    Is there a injection recipe for boston butt? I would like to get more flavor and more spice. I did my first one and it came out good only wish it had more bite. I like spice but don't want over the top spice. Thanks

    I don't think many people inject butts because of the 40 to 140 in 4 rule.  I could be wrong though,  someone will be along to answer better soon I'm sure.

    Try adding some of your rub to some apple juice and inject that and see what you think

    My cuban friend uses Mojo Crillio and Bitter/Sour Orange.  Gives it a nice tang.

    I inject with apple juice and add my rub after I pull.

    Make sure you check to see if the butt you are getting ready to cook has not been injected with a brine as part of processing at the plant. If it has then your injection is not needed.

    I see Jeff's newsletter had a recipe using Cherry Dr Pepper for an injection might want to check that out
