    Sandi (From CA)'s Note:

    So named because there are two of them....and because I couldn't think of a better title right now. Yield is estimate depending on the size of your butts and how you'll be serving them. Prep time does not include 4-hour refrigeration period.

    Units: US | Metric

    The meat

    • 2 pork butt

    The injection

    The rub


    1. 1
      Remove the fat cap and any large areas or pockets of external fat that can be easily trimmed away. The logic behind this method is that: ** Smoke and rub won't penetrate the external fat; ** It takes more time and fuel to cook a pork butt with all the fat intact; ** Unlike a brisket flat, which is quite lean and benefits from the protection that a layer of fat offers, a pork butt contains a tremendous amount of intramuscular fat, so the roast essentially "self-bastes" from the inside out; ** After many hours of cooking, much of the external fat renders away, and you're not going to eat the fat that's left--you're going to cut it away and discard it; ** Removing the external fat allows for the formation of more dark, flavorful outside meat that people enjoy so much.

      Moving right along --
    3. 3
      Mix the injection ingredients together and shoot 'em in those butts.
    4. 4
      Mix the rub ingredients together and rub and spank it on said butts.
    5. 5
      Refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
    6. 6
      Smoke at about 225F until internal temperature reaches 195°F (Approximately 10 hours over mesquite lump with hickory chunks.).
    7. 7
      Let rest for 15 minutes.
    8. 8
      Pull, and have fun. Put some meat in a bun with a little of your favorite BBQ sauce. Add a little coleslaw if you wish and enjoy.

      Great recipe! I only used one roast and cut the injection and the rub in half. I still have rub left for another time. The subtle apple flavor blended throughout the meat and the combination of herbs and spices in the rub are just perfect. What a great meal this made tonight. Other than cutting back on quantity, I followed the recipe exactly and couldn't be happier with the results.
