    Pulled Pork!

    Hey guys! So this is a pulled pork I did a week or so ago. Each one weighed about 8 lbs.

    I injected with a mixture of ground up Grill Creation seasoning salt, smoked paprika, garlic powder, apple juice, and hot water. Have never tried that mix before but it turned out great! I then lathered them with canola oil and a mix of MAK Sweet and Mesquite rub.

    I set the MAK at 225* and set the Pellet Boss to alarm at an internal temperature of 160*. I then foiled both butts and poured in about cup of apple juice in each. I then set the PB to alarm at 195* IT and pulled them off. The whole process took about 13 hrs.

    What is some of your favorite injection mixtures? Id love to try something new!

    That looks great.

    I've not gone down the injection road yet.

    I've never injected yet either but I've been thinking about trying it. Thanks for posting your recipe I'll have to give it a shot.

    I have always been off the opinion that if you have a good piece of meat and it is cooked correctley you dont need it. But I think I will get out of the box and try injection. Great looking pork! The only thing I could suggest is to put a pan under the butts with some flavors and catch the drippings. Then defat and reduce. Then put that pork aujus back into the pork.

    Injections are fun and give a variety of different flavor profiles, we use beer quite a bit as well as flavored bullion.
    Nice job Matt!

    M, your pulled pork looks great. I use SOW to inject for pulled pork. I also pull at 160 to foil and add apple juice. Always comes out fantastic.

    When you pulled them off at an IT of 195, how long did you let it rest or did you FTW for a few hours?

    Thanks!
