Bourbon Mopped Butt?

WylecyotWylecyot Posts: 200
Looking to try something a little different for tailgating this weekend.  It seems to me I saw a recipe here a while ago for bourbon mopped pork butt.  Does anyone recall this?  I tried Google but no luck.

Thanks!

    No help here but yes I have had bourbon that would have been best served mopping anything, floor included.   B)

    I seem to recall the recipe was similar to the popular maple bourbon ham. Honestly, I'm a little concerned about what this would do to the bark.

    Game changer if you are considering injecting into the butt.  I'm trusting your rub and a protracted cook to blend the flavour.  So if you want to go down this road I would buy a pint of the cheapest bourbon sold in your area and juice it up with the injector.  BTW- if going with the injector, wrap in a shrink warp before applying the juice-eliminates stray shots around the kitchen/prep area and the follow-on impact... FWIW-
