Place your pork butt in a food safe ziploc bag, and pour in half of the marinade. Place the bag in the fridge and marinate overnight.

Preheat your cooker to 325ºF. Salt your butts to preference, and smoke over indirect heat to an internal temperature of 160ºF.

At this point, get the pork butt off the heat, and wrap tightly. Before you “seal” the foil, pour 1/2 cup of the reserve marinade over the meat. Place back on the cooker and let it smoke to an internal temp of 200ºF. When done, save the juices from the foil, and let the pork rest for 20 minutes, then pull into desired chunks/strands.

Finishing Sauce:

  • Sautee 1 onion
  • Add 1/2 C of remaining marinade
  • 1/2 C of Juices from foil
  • Bring to Boil then simmer.

Add the pork chunks to the sauce and give them a coating. Serve with orange,lemon & lime wedges
