Smoked Pork Butt
I think most of you know how much I love a good Butt. Matter of fact, I don’t think there is anything more juicy, delicious, and succulent, than a well prepared Butt! And oh that smell. I can still smell it on my hands and my clothes from the last time I had great Butt. When is the last time you had really good Butt. Has it been a while? I think for most of us over 50 it has been. But no worries. I am going to reintroduce you to some of the finest Butt in the world. And if you can get the fire real hot, you too can become a true Butt connoisseur.
Millions of people from all over the Deep South think they are experts on good Butt. Here goes my opinion: Start with a good pice of Pork. The Butt is just another word for the Pork Shoulder. It’s a pretty cheap cut of meat and takes some slow,slow, methodical caressing to make it tender as can be.
Raw Pork Butt
You will need a Butt around 12 to 16 pounds. Now most of you think that is one large Butt, but when we are all done it will be the perfect size.
Lets start smoking now:
You will need 2 pork shoulders weighing together about 12 to 16 lbs. Now let’s make the injection liquid.
3/4 cup apple juice. 1/2 cup water, 1/2 cup sugar, 3 tbls salt, and 2 tbls worcestershire sauce.
Next the rub.
1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup white sugar,1/2 cup parpika, 1/3 cup garlic powder, 2 tbls white salt, 1 tbls chili powder, 1 tsp cayenne pepper, 2tsp black pepper, 1 tsp dried oregano, 1 tsp cumin.
Mix all the spices together. In a bowl mix the injection liquid with the salt and sugar until it has dissolved. Inject the injection liquid into the two cold shoulders all over. Gently pat/coat the meat with the rub to thoroughly cover. I mix up a little mustard and honey first and rub it all over. It helps creates a little paste for the rub to stick to.
Set out at room temerature for 2 hours. Place it on indirect heat at about 185 degrees for around 1 hour per total pound. Have prepared smoke pouches with half soked, half dry hickory, apple , or misquite chips ready to go. I suggest having a 6 made up in the beginning and make 6 more while the Butt is smoking. Now just sit back with a cold one, keep the temperature around 185, and smell the glory of the Butt.
When it is done you will basically left with two blackended looking
small footballs. Let them rest for 45 minutes. Then pop them open and you will see the most beautiful thing you have ever seen or smelled. It will just fall apart. Take a couple of forks and start pulling it apart and squirt a ton of Barbeyaki Spicy Grilling sauce all over it. Grab a few warmed up Brioche Buns and slather a little Barbeyaki Original Grilling sauce on the buns. Mix up a little cole slaw with some yellow mustard and mayo in it and a little bit of white sugar and pickle relish. Pile that on top. Close up the buns, and get yourself ready to ecperience the best, most juiciest Butt you have ever put in your mouth.
