Thanks in advance..

Sweet Smoke Que Pork Juice. It is OFF THE CHAIN!! All you have to do is pour 2/3 cup of the concentrate in a jar and 1 and 1/3 cup of fruit juice and you're ready to go.

You might look at trying Stubb's Pork Marinade cut 50/50 with apple juice.

Not every competitor injects, but I think a huge majority do. Of those that do, I think there's probably another 50-80% of them that use their own variation on this above.

The simplest is just apple juice, some worchestershire, and some of your rub ground up fine. Right there is probably 25%. Mind you, everyone uses a different rub, and varying amounts of above, and varying amount of time they inject before they put the meat on the smoker, so they taste quite different. Add in different woods, cook temps, smoke, etc. and even if they used the exact same recipe they'd still taste fairly different.

Do you have a list or know most of the teams that will be at the cook?
