Equipment & Fuel


1. Prepare vertical drum smoker for indirect cooking at 250-275 degrees.  Add a of couple of chunks of Hickory and Pecan wood for smoke flavor.

2. Pat the pork butt dry using a paper towel.  Apply the yellow mustard to the outside in a thin layer.  Season the entire pork butt with Killer Hogs Hot Rub so that no mustard is visible.

3. Place the pork butt on the cooking rack in the drum smoker fat side down so it renders and drips on the coals below. 

4. Smoke the pork butt for 4 hours or until the rub has adhered to the outside and begins to turn a dark mahogany color.

5. Place the pork butt in a 1/2 size aluminum steam pan, pour 1 cup of Killer Hogs Vinegar sauce over the pork butt, and cover the pan with aluminum foil.

6. Insert a probe thermometer through the foil into the center of the pork butt.  Be careful not to hit the bone for accurate reading.

7. Return the pork butt to the smoker and continue to cook until the internal temperature reaches 200 degrees.

8. Carefully remove the pork butt from the pan and place it on a wire cooling rack.  Combine 1 cup Vinegar sauce with 1 cup BBQ Sauce and brush over the outside of the pork butt.

9. Place the pork butt back on the smoker for 15-20 minutes to set the glaze.

10. Remove the pork butt from the smoker once the glaze has caramelized and formed a bark.  Rest the pork butt for 15-20 minutes before pulling.
