Smoked Pork Shoulder
Well, there's nothing easier than this, and it's pretty hard to beat. Boston butt is cheap and the result is irresistible. Some people brine the pork but I just throw it in the smoker for about 10 - 12 hours. Serve with some barbeque sauce on the side, soft hamburger buns and maybe a little spicy cole slaw. Life is good.
4 - 6 pound untrimmed pork shoulder (sometimes called Boston butt)
Note: Pork butt is sometimes sold in smoked, precooked or cured versions. You don't want any of those for this recipe!
Smoke, fat side up, by by indirect method (200 - 225º) about 10 to 12 hours. Meat should be starting to fall apart when finished.
