I'm doin a 10# Pork Butt this weekend for some family and wondered if I could get a little advice.................
1) I've never 'brined' the butt before the smoke but have used Olive Oil to coat everything from steaks to ribs, chicken, etc to help with moisture. Should work on a Pork Butt as well, right ? I plan to pat it down the morning of the smoke and use a dry rub for flavor. Any thoughts ?
2) What type of wood does everyone recommend for a Butt ?
Thanks in advance for any advice or thoughts on the subject !
