    So I brine cured a pork butt a couple Sundays ago. Took it out last Saturday and rinsed and soaked in clean waterX2. Smoked it Sunday and noticed when I took it out of smoker it was leaching out salt like crazy. Should I soak it for a few hours tomorrow before I cook it?

    I Dry Cure mine with Tender Quick, and I never heard of anything like that. Are you sure it's salt that is leaching out??

    I would ask some people who brine cure their Butts what that is.

    We Need more info on your process and the recipe of the brine you used. Otherwise we'd be all just be guessing.
