There's a thread somewhere here about injecting with an Italian dressing concoction. Never tried it but it seems popular.

I always inject. Creole butter or a modified version of Chris Lilly's pork injection. Give it a try and see what you think.
You could take whatever you're injecting and use it as a finishing sauce after it's pulled, or do both. You're adding flavor and salt - not sure if it makes it more moist, the fat and gelatin make it seem moist with or without an injection - unless it's way overcooked.
I know the tip that lousubcap mentioned. yet I have slacks and a sweater with injection squirted on them right this very second. Gah! I used Chris Lilly's injection spiked with a touch of apple pie moonshine tonight.
I am definitely a believer in injecting butts. I started doing it about 4 months ago and feel like my results have been taken to a completely different level! I also use the Chris Lilly recipe.
