Recipe for 2 butts
3/4 cup apple juice
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup white sugar
1/4 cup table salt (I either use kosher salt or cut back a little on the table salt)
2 Tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
Combine all ingredients and stir until sugar and salt are dissolved.
A fairly high percentage of competitors who inject use their own version of this (above).
Me, I found that this above is too salty for my palate, and that if I back off of the water the apple juice is sweet enough, so I go without the sugar as well. I enjoy just the apple juice, Worcestershire, and some of my rub to tie in the external and internal flavors.
