    You may want to try your next butts without injecting them.  I have found no difference in the end result.

     Long time ago I did 2 side by side butts—one injected and one not.   The injected one was more moist and had better flavor to me.   So I inject.   Others don’t.

    Put my in the "I like to inject my butt" group.  I inject w a mixture of vinegar, white and apple cider, ketchup, hot sauce, and spices.

    Would love to hear what you inject your butts with.  Bonus points if you do it in a slow, deep, Barry White-esque voice!

    No bonus points for voice. Lol.    I use:    1 c pineapple juice,   1 c apple juice, 1/2 c brown sugar, 1/4 c kosher salt, 2 T Worcestershire sauce, 2 T soy sauce, 2 T Cholula hot sauce, 1 T dry mustard.  Combine and heat until dissolved and cool down before inject.    This is a Dr Bbq recipe.   This easily does 2 10# butts so you could probably reduce all ingredients by 25% size if you want to.

    You are welcome.   I should have included in first post.   For rub I just coated with yellow mustard and used the Costco rib rub.    I find it less salty than Bad Byron’s butt rub

    I figured you Army guys were into butt injection but there is no doubt you had to have a surrogate do the injecting.  =)

    @lousubcap.  Sorry to say that the Army policy is exit only, my friend!   After some submarine confessions from @CTMike, he let us know it’s not the same underwater.
