  • 1 pork butt or pork shoulder 5-10 pounds
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 1 tablespoon sea salt (try the Tasty Yummies Himalayan pink salt)
  • 1 tablespoons ground pepper
  • 1½ tablespoons garlic powder
  1. Preheat oven to 275 or if using Traeger, set to 275.
  2. Remove pork butt from packaging and pat dry.
  3. Prepare your rub. Mix the rub ingredients together in a small bowl until well combined.
  4. Spread the mixture over the pork butt. If using a larger pork butt, you may need to double the rub.
  5. Oven-place pork butt fat site up in an oven safe container uncovered for about 5 hours. Once you see the bark nice and crispy, cover the container with a lid and cook until the internal temperature reaches 190-200 degrees.
  6. Smoker-place pork butt fat side up. Put a small grill safe container fill with water inside next to the pork. Cooking until the internal temperature reaches 190-200 degrees.
Plan for 60-90 minutes per pound
