• Cheshire Pork Boston Butt
• Heath Riles BBQ Honey Chipotle Rub
• Heath Riles BBQ Pork Injection (1/4 cup for 1 butt)
• Apple Juice 20 oz, divided (12 oz for Pork Injection & 8 oz for Butter Bath)
• Heath Riles BBQ Butter Bath (1/4 cup)

1. Mix 1/4 cup of pork injection with 12 oz of apple juice to get ready to inject. You can use any liquid of your choice, we just prefer apple juice.
2. Use a grid-like pattern to inject butt.
3. Score fat on butt, we are cooking fat side up.
4. Season butt with Heath Riles BBQ Honey Chipotle Rub on all sides. Allow rub to sweat in for 15-20 minutes.
5. Put on Traeger Grill (or smoker / grill of your choice) fat side up at 225º. We used Royal Oak Pellets for this cook.
6. Cook butt for approximately 8 hours at 225º. Our butt was approximately 160º at this point.
7. Remove butt to wrap with Butter Bath (1/4 cup) and Apple Juice (8 oz.). Wrap foil tightly.
8. Return to grill, we set our probe to 200º.
9. We turned our temperature up to 275º and cooked for another 2 hours.
10. We had a total cook time of 10 hours, our butt had an internal temperature of 200º when we took it off of the grill.
11. Allow butt to rest for 1-2 hours.
12. ENJOY!

    doing a pork butt for the first time today. I got baby back and spare ribs down to a science. I'm always nervous about messing up a decently priced cut of meat. thanks for the tips my dude.

    Can anyone suggest an alternative to the butter bath to put in the wrap? Wasn't able to get it in time for my cook. Would plain old melted butter work or would it burn and get nasty?

    Heath you're stuff looks amazing as always I'm wondering about hitting rub back on them at the end of the cook like you did here Everytime I do that run never breaks down in enough time and leaves me with a sand type texture in each bite

    I understand you are trying to sell products, particularly your own. However, you have not made an "infomercial" about how to smoke and use your products, but rather a 'commercial' for your products instead. This will cause me, and others I'm sure, to delete or send to spam your emails in the future.
    I love making BBQ and smoking product. I'm a certified BBQ judge with the KCBS. But I will not waste my time watching a commercial. Please change your approach.

    I started using a traeger since moving to TN. And I haven't been able to get pork butts to turn out like they did on my WSM. Going to give your method a try next time for sure, thanks!
