Ingredients
  • 1 (7 to 8 pound) Boston pork butt
  • 2 tablespoons yellow mustard
  • 4 ounces spice rub (recommended: Out of this World BBQ Rub)
  • 1 cup apple juice or apple cider
Directions

Coat the pork butt with the mustard. Apply the spice rub all over the pork butt, creating a paste with the mustard. Place the pork, fat side up, in a preheated 225 to 250 degree F smoker for 10 1/2 hours, or until the internal temperature reaches 190 to 200 degrees F. During the smoking process, leave the smoker closed for the first 2 hours and then spray the pork with a small amount of apple juice or cider every 2 hours thereafter.

Remove pork butt from the smoker and let rest for at least 15 minutes before pulling apart.
