Just picked up a 7.5 Boston Butt that I plan on smoking this Saturday. Does anyone have have a good suggestion on marinade and rub? The last time I smoked a 4lbs butt, it came out sweet. I marinaded for about 12hours in worcester sauce (sp) and apple juice. Then made a rub that consist of mustard, garlic powder, onion powder, season all, chili powder, brown sugar and some other spices that I cant recall. It had good flavor just a little too sweet. Did I over do it with the marinade and rub?
How long should I expect to smoke this bad boy? I thought about possible starting Friday night, but I am hesitant about going to sleep while it's smoking. Any tips for that?
I appreciate your help!
