Pork rib injection recipe?

Hi All - I'm looking for some suggestions on an injection recipe for pork ribs.

Also how long should I leave the injection to sit in the meat before smoking?

Thanks in advance for some pointers!

    Hi, TorontoBBQer,

    Don't know that I've ever heard of injecting pork ribs. Would take a pretty fine syringe, and a very thin sauce, Perhaps someone out there has done this.

    For myself, I sometimes marinade spares or back ribs. Usually something simple, a cider vinaigrette w. some garlic and pepper.

    If you are looking to do so called country or western ribs, which are just slices of butt, even those are not thick enough to hold much injected fluids. I suspect a brine or marinade would work better on those.

    +1 with gdenby-no surgeon here but too much hassle in my opinion and we all know what those are worth:)

    +1 on brining or marinade. Injecting might be more hassle than it's worth. If you do, keep the ribs in the cryovac to prevent messes while poking your meat with sharp metal objects.
