Smoked Boston Butt

The best pulled pork you've ever had is a few simple steps away with my Smoked Boston Butt Recipe!

You will need...

Step 1

Add pellets to the smoker, and preheat to 225°F. While it's heating, combine ½ cup brown sugar, paprika, pepper, garlic, minced onion, and chili powder in a small bowl, and mix well to combine.

Step 2

Set the pork butt on a cutting board, and rub it down entirely with olive oil.

Step 3

Making sure to get every side, sprinkle the whole pork with salt flakes.

Step 4

Sprinkle the boston butt rub mixture on all sides of the boston butt, making sure to spread it evenly across the entire surface including crevices.

Step 5

Open the preheated smoker, and place the butt inside. Cook for 6 hours or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F.

Step 6

Remove the pork from the smoker, then place it in an aluminum roasting pan and sprinkle it with the last ½ cup of brown sugar. Place the unmelted stick of butter on top of the roast, cover the pan with tin foil, and place it back in the smoker.

Step 7

Remove, and allow the pork to rest for another 2 hours without removing the foil. Once rested, shred with a fork and enjoy!
