I'm looking for a good pork butt marinade that can be injected into the meat.

Steve Jack Mixon's Old South barbecue team from just down the road uses this he says.  He been national barbecue champion a few times and swears this is very close to his contest mixture.  He injects and marinades with the same stuff.

2 quarts apple juice
1 cup Worcestershire sauce
1 cup orange juice
1 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup lemon juice
2 tablespoons Louisiana hot sauce
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup salt


Heat and whisk together until sugar and salt dissolve.

I'm not an injection person but this guy is good and does all of the time.

Thanks, I saw him on the Food Network several days ago... that's why I was interested in injection. But, I didn't record the show so I didn't catch his recipe. Thanks a lot!  ;D

Bought a bottle of his sauce but thought it very salty but his rub from the same show looks pretty good.
Jack's Old South BBQ Rub:
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup sweet paprika
1/4 cup kosher salt
3 tablespoons black pepper
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons onion powder
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon dried basil
Combine all ingredients and mix well.

To me though the secret to a good butt is pepper and hickory.
I use a fifty-fifty mixture of salt and pepper over a thin coat of yellow mustard.

We're having a barbecue party on Sunday... about 5 couples coming. I'm planning to smoke two Boston butts. Wanted to try something new and interesting this time.

I've always heard good things about yellow mustard as a rub for butt. I'll try your method on one, and the injection marinade on the other.  :)

Jack's Marinade was a huge hit with the guests this weekend. My regular dry rubbed butt was not as tender and moist.

Also, a lot of people (including myself) loved Jack's vinegar sauce.  8)

Going to have to try that I think.

Did my first pork butt last week, it was good to me but i don't know enough about how it is "suppose" to taste.

Going to try anther one next time I smoke.  May try pork ribs as well.  Neighbor want to lean how to do the ribs, to her we could learn together.
