  • 2 1/2 tablespoons paprika
  • 2 tablespoons kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon raw or granulated brown sugar

  • 1/2 cup white vinegar

  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper, optional


Pork Butt:

Season the pork butt in this order: salt, granulated garlic, black pepper and MOGridder's Dry Rub Barbecue Seasoning. Smoke the pork in a smoker at 220 degrees F until fork tender, about 10 1/2 hours. Remove from the smoker and chop the meat. Serve with MOGridder's Barbecue Sauce.

MOGridder's Dry Rub Barbecue Seasoning:

Mix together the paprika, salt, granulated sugar, chili powder, onion powder, ground pepper, raw sugar, oregano and thyme in a small bowl. Store in a glass jar with an airtight seal.

MOGridder's Barbecue Sauce:

Combine the sugar, black pepper, salt, granulated garlic, oregano and thyme in a medium, nonreactive saucepan over medium heat. Stir in enough vinegar to make a loose paste. In a bowl, combine the ketchup, molasses, mustard and cayenne. Incorporate into the paste. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce the heat and simmer until thick, about 20 minutes.
