  • Mix 1/4 cup of pork injection with 12 oz of apple juice to get ready to inject. You can use any liquid of your choice, we just prefer apple juice.
  • Use a grid-like pattern to inject butt.
  • Score fat on butt, we are cooking fat side up.
  • Season butt with Heath Riles BBQ Honey Chipotle Rub on all sides. Allow rub to sweat in for 15-20 minutes.
  • Put on Traeger Grill (or smoker / grill of your choice) fat side up at 225º. We used Royal Oak Pellets for this cook.
  • Cook butt for approximately 8 hours at 225º. Our butt was approximately 160º at this point.
  • Remove butt to wrap with Butter Bath (1/4 cup) and Apple Juice (8 oz.). Wrap foil tightly.
  • Return to grill, we set our probe to 200º.
  • We turned our temperature up to 275º and cooked for another 2 hours.
  • We had a total cook time of 10 hours, our butt had an internal temperature of 200º when we took it off of the grill.
  • Allow butt to rest for 1-2 hours.
