    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 300°F.
    2. 2
      Liberally salt and pepper the butt and let sit at room temperature for at least 30 minutes.
    3. 3
      Get a cast iron Dutch oven very hot and sear the butt very well on all sides; set aside.
    4. 4
      With a small paring knife, make incisions deep enough all around the butt to insert a clove of garlic into each.
    5. 5
      Put the butt back in the Dutch oven and place the rest of the ingredients around it.
    6. 6
      If your pot doesn't have a very tight fitting lid, you will want to wrap the whole thing in tin foil. Otherwise, just place the lid on it and throw it in the oven for 6-8 hours.
    7. 7
      If you don't have that kind of time, you can cook it at a higher temperature for a shorter amount of time or you can do it overnight for 8-10 hours at a lower temperature.
    8. 8
      You can't overcook this piece of meat as long as there is sufficient liquid in it.
    9. 9
      You'll want to check it periodically to make sure there is still a good amount of liquid.
    10. 10
      Cook it until it falls apart.
    11. 11
      This makes a delicious broth that is wonderful on its on or as a base to a good BBQ sauce.

      One of DH's coworkers gave us some homemade hot sauce. I was looking for a recipe to use it when I came across this. The house smelled wonderful while it was cooking. I didn't have any, but the rest of the family gave it a 3. They said it had a lot of heat to it, but not much flavor. The flavor of the onion and garlic was lost to the hot sauce. On the other hand the meat was moist and tender. It fell right off of the bone.

      This is it.... the only recipe I'll ever use for pork butt from now on. I made this for dinner Sunday... seared the meat, used a chipotle hot sauce and then cooked it all afternoon in the crock pot. It was good the first night, and even better for pulled pork sandwiches later. 10 stars!

      We really like the flavor of this. I was kind of worried it might taste like bbq, but it doesn't. YAY for that. It's a very unique flavor. Made as directed, using Franks instead of Crystal. Oh, and I cooked it in the crockpot instead of the oven.
