Can't find much for help on Google; needing to do 60lbs or so and not wanting to babysit the smoker on this one.
Just looking for tips/insight/lessons learned.
Yes. I have an Oster electric smoker, roster. I use it for small butts, I use my Vision kamodo if doing a lot. It comes out fine in the Oster and I can turn the heat down to a real low setting to keep it warm.
This is what I do for large cooks. 4-6 hours in the smoker to get the smoke flavor then into my large roaster.
It's not hard to do.....I've cooked pulled pork like that with great success. It's not BBQ but roasted pulled pork tastes great. We slow cooked ours in chicken broth......that's what I'd recommend for your liquid. Put some carrots, onions and celery in there and you've got some sides too.
I've done this many times. I've just poked many holes in the butt with a knife and add kosher salt, garlic pepper, and liquid smoke all over it. I cook it fat side up. You will want to put foil over the roaster then place the lid on it, helps keep the heat in. I cook it til the bone slides out easy. You can do it with a crock pot as well, same way. Just put it on high and let it go. I don't put liquids in it either. Good luck.
