I am planning on smoking an 11.3 pound pork butt roast for memorial day. I have a rub to apply Sunday night before the smoking monday.
I have read sometimes a baste of apple juice, apple cider vinegar, and vegetable oil or a variation of the 3 is a good thing. Has anyone had good luck with that? If so, how often did you baste and how far into the smoke did you start?
Also, would you recommend cutting the roast into 2 pieces? It has a bone in if that changes anything.
I have a WSM 18.5" so room shouldn't be a problem.
Any tips or tricks are appreciated.
thanks in advance!
