I loved this recipe, thought I had reviewed this already. Making this again tonight have made it several times. Not having a smoker I just cooked in oven at 250 degrees for 3 to 4 hours and added liquid smoke to sauce. Sometimes I don't make the sauce and use Famouse Dave zesty bbq sauce when I'm feeling lazy. This is the only recipe I use now no need to try any others. Thank you for making my husband happy. Kari
