    Ok to use Cider instead of Apple Jiuce for SYD?

    I am out of apple juice but I have some fresh cider. Has anyone made SYD Butts with cider? How was it? Should I just go buy apple juice? Thanks.

    Hi, to be honest, I don't know if it is ok, but we do it all the time. The apple taste is still there. What is SYD butts?

    Thanks, I guess it would depend on how thick or thin your cider is if you are going to inject it. You could always strain it. Cider is suppose to be a little more tart than juice.

    You might have trouble injecting the cider because it will have pulp. The pulp could clog up your injector.

    Strain it if it has pulp, some ciders are filtered, but not pasteurized like apple juice.
    Better than using juice, in my opinion.

    I use either, but probably prefer cider when available.

    I used cider on ribs a couple of weeks ago. Mixed it with a little cider vinegar and it went through the spray bottle fine.

    Well...I just realized this morning at 6AM, as I placed my Boston butt on the smoker, that my wife had drank the last of my apple juice.

    So today we are using 50/50 mix of Apple Cider vinegar and water for the spritz. Should be interesting!
