Oh come on now!
I agree with you that butts don't need to be injected to be tasty. But, injecting can add more flavor and if done correctly doesn't make the meat taste like sardines. I've done them both ways side by side. Some like the injected some don't. It is a personal preference. There is no one way. To suggest that there is no benefit is wrong and to suggest that those of us who do inject produce sardines is insulting.
