I recenlty found out that an agent I call on competes in the KCBS network. We were chatting about butts and he suggested injecting, not a lot, some apple cider into the butt. Says that it steams from within. I have found all of my butts very moist. Could this be due to the moisture a ceramic cooker retains vs. a metal off set cooker?
Also, he said he only used hickory smoke for the first 8 hrs or so, then goes to oak. Says hickory can overpower the meat.
Just curious for some thoughts on this.
I think I'm going to try his methods this weekend, but I hate playing with what I consider perfection.
