I've smoked a lot of stuff with my Master Forge vertical smoker, but Pork Butt was one thing I hadn't done yet. I've been meaning to make some ever since I got the thing, and figured my annual party/barbeque was a good enough excuse as any. I went to the local GFS and picked up 17.5 pounds. Only cost me $27!
I threw together some spices for the rub. In retrospect, I think I'll use a little less of the pepper and maybe some more barbeque-like flavor spice. Still, this worked very well.
Here it is all rubbed, and ready to sit in the fridge overnight.
I put both in the smoker at around 8am the next morning. Here it is about 4 hours into the smoke. Also, you can see my little spray bottle that I put (in a 1 to 3 ratio) Captain Morgan's spiced rum and Apple Juice into. Sprayed the meat about every hour.
Gonna need to clean the smoker after this one! I smoked them both until they hit about 165ish, then wrapped them in foil, gave an extra dose of the spray, and popped them in the oven @ 350 until both were finished at 195.
The finished product was delicious. Great bark, awesome smoke coloring as well.

Any questions feel free to ask! I've got a ton of leftovers so I'm going to be enjoying this stuff for days!
