Default Chris Lilly's Injection - Stupid Question

Apologies -- rook question here:

First time injecting a 7lb Boston Butt. The "Chris Lilly" recipe shows 2 cups of liquid. How do I know when to stop injecting? Am I putting all 2 cups into the meat?

I'm not sure about that particular recipe, but I'd just put as much in there as it'll hold. Nothing wrong with being too juicy.

Yeah his recipe is actually for a full 16lb shoulder, but I also use the full amount per butt! Theres no such thing as over injecting a tame recipe like that one. Now if you have a super salty spicey injection you may want to watch out but use it all and you wont be dissapointed

Yep, put in as much as it'll take. For reference though, the full recipe is for a 16-18 pound whole shoulder, so to follow the plan closely just use 1/2 the recipe, or about a cup.

I kindly disagree with this. You are injecting a flavor that could overpower the taste of the meat if you put too much in. The difficult thing is, you won't know what you like until you try it. I suggest keeping a journal so you can remember what you did last time and what you thought of it so you can modify for the next cook.

Me, I use about 1 cup of the Chris Lily injecting in a 10# butt.

I use the same recipe for butts and inject as much as it will take. It won't take but so much anyway. Inject away.

I wouldn't over do it with the injection as there is a lot of salt in it.

Chris notes about 1oz. per lb. here at the 3:35 mark , which as some said above about 1 cup per butt..

I have tried it with both Kosher and table salt. For some reason the salt kept sitting at the bottom of my jar.

bring it up in temp to dissolve the salt then let it cool down before injecting

We asked Myron this very question.

His reply:

"The more injection you can get in... the more flavor you'll get out."
