Anyone use a sugarless pork butt injection?
The last time I injected a pork butt I used the famous Chris Lilly recipe from the web. It was great! BUT I noticed that the shoulder and the brisket flats sitting below it had a really black dark bark. I attributed this to the sugar in the injection (all the sugar and the apple juice). I've had similar black bark with high sugar dry rubs. I really don't like a burnt sugary black bark so I wasn't able to mix in much bark.

I loved the idea of injecting a pork shoulder as it was very tasty with good moisture but I'm curious if anyone has used a pork injection with no sugar? Maybe inject it with a vinegar based salty solution with some spice? Thoughts?

Creole butter is a really nice savory and spicy injection.

Strained Italian Dressing. I know of a guy that took 3rd place at the American Royal with it.

Chicken stock, cider vinegar & worcestershire is awfully good IMHO

If you decide to make an injection with butter or any other fat or oil, get some of this and dissolve a few in the mixture.

Its an emulsifier, and will keep the fats and other liquids from separating. It does not affect the taste in any way, and is perfectly safe.

I can't speak for the injection too much as I use a simple one of homemade chicken stock. I do however go with a no sugar rub. Bad Byron's Butt Rub. Kinda spicy and my favorite on butts.
