    Was wondering if that's what you meant. Hmmm, maybe I'll drive 15 counties over to find some alcoholic cider...

    I guess when you figure the calories of a butt, adding something with a bit of sweetness isn't doing much to the calorie profile.

    Will need to try some injections in the future, cider like you describe, and a mix like EddieMac gave a recipe for.

    Straight apple juice works really well also. I even once used a mix of Jack Daniel’s and apple juice to inject, really came out good. I think the alcoholic cider works so well because of the flavor but more the alcohol and carbonation serve to tenderize the meat and change up the flavor profile a bit.

    Try taking some Bourbon, brown sugar (2:1 ratio) butter and apple juice, get it all going in a sauce pan and inject your pork butt with that. I bet you it’ll be awesome. That’s my next pork butt, just decided.

    I need to restock on some things. When I decided to cook it on Saturday (tested positive again, so cancelled my Mustang break in drive), I didn't have any apple juice, or any juice, in the house. I'll be better prepared next time and either try some cider or if I can't locate any, maybe some apple juice/bourbon like you say. I have some not too expensive bourbon I've bought for when we cook.

    Apple juice and pork just work so well together… please post the results of the bourbon or and liquor injections… I’ve read mixed reviews on it, but never how much was used, nor how long before the cook it was injected..
