Incredible Cherry Dr. Pepper Pulled Pork

Incredible Cherry Dr. Pepper Pulled Pork

Preparing the Pork for Smoking

I decided to inject my pork butts this time which is something I rarely do. My BBQ Bob’s Basic Rub is amazing and adds a lot of flavor to the meat. Injecting with the cherry Dr. Pepper adds flavor to the inside of the pork butt and increases the juiciness of the finished product.


I put an ounce or so of cherry Dr. Pepper about every 2 inches across the top of the butt. There are various methods for injecting meat but I usually go in at a 45 degree angle and once I push the needle in.. I back up about 1/2 inch before pushing in the plunger.. seems to work well for me. It is ok if some of the fluid runs out the top of the hole you made.
