Trim Boston Butt to your liking, we did not trim much off of this and we left the fat cap on.
Put binder on butt, we used yellow mustard.
Season butt with Heath Riles BBQ Pecan Rub and then Heath Riles BBQ Sweet BBQ Rub. (You can purchase both of these rubs in the Sweet & Savory Flavor Fusion Bundle on our website)
Get smoker up to temperature, we cooked at 275º and used Royal Oak Charcoal and Hickory wood for this cook.
Place butt on smoker fat side up and cook to approximately 140º, this was about 3 and a half hours for us. We did spritz our butt about every hour with water (you can use apple juice or whatever liquid you prefer).
Once butt reaches 140º we wrapped with our Heath Riles BBQ Tangy Vinegar Sauce and foil and placed this back on the smoker.
Cook butt to an internal temperature of 200º, this was another 2 and a half hours for us. Total cook time was 6 hours.
Allow cooked butt to rest for 1 hour.
Make coleslaw (recipe above) if you plan to make delicious pulled pork sandwiches!
