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


  1. 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. 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.
  2. (Use this on everything) .

Cook’s Note
