  • 1/4 cup BBQ dry rub, homemade or store-bought
  • 1 cup apple juice in spray bottle

Special equipment: Charcoal and hickory and apple wood chips soaked in water 1/2 hour prior to cooking

Twelve hours prior to cooking, trim fat cap to 1/4-inch thickness from pork butt. Season heavily with dry rub. Place in plastic bag and refrigerate overnight.

Place pork butt in smoker and smoke for 14 to 16 hours adding 1 handful of hickory and 1 handful of apple chips every 4 hours. After 5 hours in smoker, begin spraying generously with apple juice every 2 hours.
