Course Marinades/Brines
Cuisine American BBQ
Servings 1 Cups

Ingredients
  

  • 1/2 cup apple juice
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons spice rub (the same that you'll be using on the roast)
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

Instructions
 

  • Make sure that the spice rub is well pulverized. Large chunks of herbs can become stuck in the injector. If possible, grind them down further in a mortar and pestle or spice grinder.
  • Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl. Let stand for 10-15 minutes, and stir. Salt should be well dissolved.
  • Fill the syringe and inject the solution into multiple parts of the pork roast. Cook as directed.
  • Discard any marinade that has come into contact with raw meat.
  • Make ahead of time and store in a covered container in the refrigerator for 5 days after preparation.
