Lately I have not had the time or the money to really flex on the kettle. However, enough is enough. Got an 8# butt on the kettle right now. Injected with apple juice, cider vinegar, and a splash of creole butter. First time injecting anything but yardbird so we shall see. Rubbed with Punch ya Daddy Cajun rub.
I had a craving for PP sammies with slaw so the KFC clone recipe is in the fridge too. Gee, mebbbe I could make some epic beans??? Still have time to go to the store and buy some stuff... Maybe?

Is it done yet?

It's done. KFC clone slaw came out alright, but I really needed to chop the veggies up more. A little too rustic. On the flip side this butt was my best tasting shoulder to date. Huge roasty pork flavor, light smoke, not too sweet, not overspiced from the rub. I got only one bite with the butter flavor. Now I need to do a SxS cook to see if the injection is what did it. I even froze the pan juice sans fat for a rainy day.
