  1. Place Dry rub ingredients in a large Ziplock Bag and mix well.
  2. Rinse Pork Buttes and sprinkle heavily with the Dry Rub,& using a Knife, poke some holes over entire surface of the Pork.

  4. Place in a large container covered with saran wrap and refrigerate Buttes for 8 hours or over night.
  5. Add all the Sauce ingredients in a sauce pan and bring to a boil, stirring constantly so it doesn't stick.
  6. Let sauce cool and either pour into a Quart jar or some kind of seal able container.
  7. This Sauce will Keep at least 6 Months if kept sealed and in the fridge.
  8. 8 hours later or the next day, Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
  9. Place Butts in the oven uncovered for 6 hours. Test to see if the Pork pulls apart after 6 hours. If not, continue cooking until it does.

As many times as I've made this recipe, I need to leave a review. This rub is delicious and I haven't made pork in my crock in years! My BF loves it and requests that I make it this way every time I talk about making pulled pork. The only thing I did differently was add a bottle of beer that I like (Columbus Pale Ale or Wheat Ale) around the pork before sticking it in the oven and I cover it for about 3 or 4 hours then uncover the rest of the cooking time. The outside is still dark and crispy, falls apart and is super moist! I don't make the BBQ sauce as we prefer sweet baby rays cola-q and just put some on top of our sandwiches.

I tried this because of all the great reviews, it was very good and I would make it again but BE WARNED !! this sauce is WAY TO SWEET !!! Unless you like eating pure sugar, the brown sugar and molasses should be cut in half,the sweetness killed the sauce it was horrible. But the base of the sauce was good, and if cut in half is wonderful! I am an expierenced cook but found this very easy although I put the pork in the crock pot and cooked it and then added the sauce. But Donna thank you because when the sugar is cut in half it is WONDERFUL !! Thank you
