We hope you had a great Labor Day and are excited for the start of the NFL this week. If you’re not a sports fan, you can celebrate National Breakfast Month all September and National Cheese Pizza Day on September 5. We can’t wait to share some awesome fall recipes with you all! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Pork Shoulder Injection

First - a quick story. Lately, my neighbors have gotten into the habit of stopping over as soon as they hear the cover come off the Egg or smell any food on it. Gotta love the Egg!

Anyways, after my neighbor stopped by yesterday from the scenario above I agreed to make a pork shoulder on Sunday to share. 

Thinking of using Big Bob Gibson's injection w/ Dizzy Dust. Big bob gibson's injection recipe below - have never tried it. What do you all inject with (if you do)?

3/4 cup apple juice
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup kosher salt, finely ground
2 tablespoons worcestershire sauce

    I used Myron Mixon's Hog Injection from his Book "Smokin with Myron Mixon"
    Hog Injection
    4 Quarts Apple Juice
    1 Quart Distilled White Vinegar
    5 Pounds Sugar
    2 Cups Salt
    1 Cup Monosodium Glutamate such as Ac'cent.

    In a large stockpot, combine the apple juice and vinegar over medium heat. Stirring continuously, pour in sugar, salt and monosodium glutamate. Stir until seasonings ar completely dissolved. Do not boil. Remove from eat. If reserving for later use, let the liquid cool; then pour it into a large bottle or container. Store refrigerated for up to 1 year.
