I was pretty bored at work today and went and bought Peace, Love & BBQ. What an awesome book, lots of goods stories and recipes.

Anway, I ran across this one and think I remember someone asking for this in another topic.


3/4 C apple juice
1/2 C h2o
1/2 C sugar
1/4 C kosher salt, finely ground
2 T Worcestershire Sauce OR soy sauce

That's it?? That's simple enough, I'm going to have to give it a whirl.

Thanks for sharing that with us.

Sounds good. Hope the butt injection doesn't end up in the BOTB.

Why you gotta be that way Steve?:roflmaoha0:

Sounds simple alright, but it also sounds inconsequential. I mean, how much flavor coult it add with all the water and AJ in it?

If anybody tries it , let us know. If you reduced the whole mix and pumped it up full I could see hwere it might do some good, but why not add some honey or Karo syrup?

I know you guys won't believe me, but this is the first time I've been on all night, and I've never heard of this Lilly dude.

With that said, I got the wild hair tonight to build a sweet injection for my shoulders this weekend. I wanted a simple syrup, but didn't want it to inject it hot, so I cooked it up tonight and will inject it cool.

I'm not kidding, I just guessed at the measurements, but they are darn close to what you listed above:

1.5 cup apple juice
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 cup water
2-3 cracked star anise

Boiled the liquid and added the rest. Reduce to a light syrup. Remove from heat and let the anise steep.

What I haven't decided is, should I inject it the night before, or right before cooking?

I just printed Lilly's injection and rub recipes out yesterday for a future try, thanks for adding it here. Chris Lilly of Big Bob Gibson's.

I was more interested in the rub, looked different.

If anybody tries it , let us know.

Winterhaven Florida two butts injected on Feb 8th, submitted to judges on February 9th............43rd out of 44 teams. :blushing: Have not tried it since..........I did get one 10 in taste........but that only kept me out of DAL......must have been a relative of Mr. Lilly. :msn-wink:


I don't guess I know what I am doing when it comes to injecting butts.......or the flavors of the injections I have tried just don't work with my rub and sauce........I have tried injecting twice at contests and both times came in next to last..........last time out, no injection, took 4th.....which I was more than happy with after a couple of flirtations with DAL>
