Smoked Pork Butt

Injection

  • Apple Cider Substitute Apple Cider Vinegar

  • Paprika

Instructions
 

For best flavor, never used frozen meats

    If using Apple Cider Vinegar, do not use aluminum cookware

      Cook to temperature and not to time

        Remote temperature probes are optimal and best left in the meat as it is cooking

          Favorite woods to smoke for pork in order of preference are (Oak + Maple) or (Oak) or (Hickory + Apple) or (Hickory + Cherry)

            I use stainless steel baking pans with racks to smoke on. This catches mess, allows me to use any ingredients without interaction with cookware and gets 360° smoke

              Meat preparation:

              • Mix Injection ingredients, warm in a saucepan if too thick for injector
              • Inject ingredients into every major muscle in the pork butt.
              • Let sit for an hour for meat to come closer to room temperature.
              • Place meat probes into meat at different muscles. Don't touch or be too close to any bone.
