I have heard of people cooking pork in Dr.Pepper. Personally I love the southern classic drink Cheerwine. I was wonder how it would work to inject a pork shoulder with Cheerwine..... Thoughts???????????

I've injected Dr. Pepper combo's into ham with good results. If I could find Cheerwine around here I'd be all over that.

I am sure you can find it just got to look hard enough. I am from South Carolina, but live in Utah now. I found a place that sells them cheaper in bulk than I can buy them for in South Carolina.

Would you say that Soda would be better than apple juice.

Cherry Dr. Pepper works very well in an injection. I've used Cheerwine too and think it has too light a flavor in an injection. Tasty to drink though.And I think he means tonic! That's what we New Englanders used to call the stuff.

A&W Rootbeer works well also.

I've heard of people marinading in Dr. Pepper. FAWOOSH!!!

Seems like there's only one way to find out how it'd work . . . :wacko: :mrgreen:

I've used Dr. Pepper and liked it! Cheerwine would be good too!

I use Dr. Pepper for a spicy sweet mop. I love it but I am a Dr. Pepper junkie so it was only a matter of time even if no one else did it.

I have never tried it but it sounds good. What does it do to the taste of the pork?

I've never have but it sounds like a good idea to try. Didn't Moe Cason on this last season of Pitmasters inject his pork butt with jerk seasoning and ham base mixed with regular cola?

In a pinch I used Mountain Dew in Pork butts with some rub and it ended up winning the peoples choice category by over 80 votes.....so its worth a shot.

I've made a brine with Mtn Dew and kosher salt for chicken. No more than 2 hours soak or chicken starts taking the color of Mtn Dew. Very good tho.
