Ingredients

Brine:
Garlicky Barbecue Marinade:
Dry Rub:
Cider Mop Spray:
Barbecue Sauce:

Directions

Special equipment: 4 cups wood chips, soaked in water for 1 hour

Preheat a charcoal grill to 225 degrees F. Carefully edge the coals to 1 side and then add 1/2 cup drained wood chips. Place 1 cup of water in metal drip pan on opposite side.

Inject the pork butt with brine about every 2-inches and then rub with marinade and dust with Dry Rub. Place the pork on the grill, directly over the drip pan and cook. Be sure to replenish the coals as the temperatures drops, the chips as the smoke dissipates and the water in the drip pan.

After 6 hours, spray the pork with Cider Mop every half hour. Cook until a thermometer placed into the thickest part of pork reaches 195 degrees F. Transfer to a platter, brush with the sauce and let rest 30 minutes. To serve, slice into 1/2-pound servings, place on plates and serve with extra sauce alongside.

Brine:

Combine all ingredients in a bowl until the salt and sugar dissolve and then place into meat syringe for immediate brining or reserve, refrigerated, for later use.

Garlicky Barbecue Marinade:

Place all ingredients into a blender and puree. Remove to an airtight container and store in the refrigerator until needed.

Dry Rub:

Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl. Mix well and store in an air tight container for later use.

Cider Mop Spray:

Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl. Mix well to combine and store in the refrigerator until needed.

Barbecue Sauce:

Heat the oil in a saucepan set over medium heat. Add the bacon and cook until browned and crispy, about 4 minutes. Reduce the heat to low and add the onion, garlic, onion power, garlic powder, black pepper, and cloves. Cook for about 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Add the sugar and water and then bring to a simmer. Stir in the ketchup, mustard, honey, preserves and juice and then simmer for 20 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and season with the vinegar. Remove the bacon with a spider and discard. Puree the mixture with a hand blender and then cool and reserve for later use.
