Ingredients
  • Johnnys All-Purpose Rub: A Kansas City Award Winner
  • (Use this on everything)
  • 5 cups kosher salt
  • 2 1/4 cups paprika (for color)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons celery powder
  • 2 tablespoons onion powder
  • 1 tablespoons garlic powder
  • 1 cup black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon powdered vegetable oil
  • 3 to 5 pounds pork butt, rinsed with cold water
Directions

Add all of the rub ingredients to a small bowl or container and mix well. To make this a special spicy rub, add 2 tablespoons cayenne pepper. Now you have a real rockin' rub!

Heat a smoker to 225 degrees F.

Generously rub the entire butt with 1 1/2 cups Johnny's All-Purpose Seasoning. Put it in a pan, cover and refrigerate overnight. Remove pork from the refrigerator, uncover and put it in the smoker for approximately 7 to 8 hours. Cooks Note: This can also be cooked in a home oven at 425 degrees F for 2 hours. Remove the pork from the smoker to a cutting board and pull pork apart while still hot. You are now ready to serve it your favorite way.
