Hi yall,

I need some tips here for smoking up a boston butt as far as do I need to prep the meat before hand or what type of wood to smoke with?? I thought maybe blackjack oak would do the trick. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you....

Gary, Check out the Pork forum as far as prep tips go-there is a ton of stuff there.

As far as the Blackjack Oak goes, any wood from fruit or nut trees will work and since an acorn is a nut-smoke away with that Blackjack oak. Maybe one of the log burners will stop by and give you some tips. is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
