Mojo'd Pork Butt
8 Attachment(s)
I bought the Publix brand Mojo Marinade, and let the butt sit in it for 3 days in the fridge, flipping twice per day. At cook time I sprinkled a little granulated garlic, and onion on the butt. That was it. I wanted to use the butt for Cuban sandwhiches, which is what I did. Used my first ever bag of Cowboy lump, cooked at 250-260 until the temp was 165, then I put it in a pan, added some more mojo marinade covered with foil, cooked until probe tender. Was pleased with the results, and the ol' dog waits patiently for the bone.

I've only injected with mojo, never marinated. Did you get much penetration into the butt?

Had good flavor. I pulled the pork and added back some of the pan liquor. Was really pleased. I don't know why I didn't inject with some, I guess I wasn't thinking.

My goal was meat foe Cuban sandwhiches and it was perfect for that.

We buy Mojo by the gallon & Publix brand is as good as any. Use it on pork & chicken. One tip for the pork butt, if you are gonna do a 2-3 day soak, go ahead and plug it with garlic; just make hole with a boning knife and insert 2-3 garlic cloves in each hole. IMHO, more is better and the holes also let the mojo get into the meat better. Injection works too. Oh yea, add a little Adobo to your rub.
