BBQ Pork Butt Prep

I prepared 6 pork butts for an appointment with the smoker.

A meat injector, why didn't I think to try one of these?

Thanks for the great idea!

I've used an injector on pork butts for a while, and I have wondered about something. Are there certain meats or certain cuts that hold the solution better, or does it depend more on how you inject it?

It's something that takes a little practice to get good at.

I watched a video of Chris Lilly injecting pork shoulder and it helped me a lot. One of the secrets for pork is to pull the needle out while simultaneously injecting the solution.
