I tried something different yesterday. I cooked a boston butt direct with very good results. I kept this cook pretty simple. I used a butt about 5 lbs and rubbed it with salt and pepper. I put it on direct at 250 with some hickory chips. I turned it over after an hour and kept turning it every half hour or so. After the first two hours I also sprayed it with and apple cider/vinegar mixture when I turned it.[p]After about six hours, it was starting to separate from the bone. I took it off and let it rest a few minutes. The bone easily canme out and I used a cleaver to chop up some big chunks into smaller pieces. Hardly any internal fat was left. I had some good sandwiches for dinner.[p]Was this pulled pork? No. Was it barbecue? I'm not sure. Was it very good, smokey pork? Hell yes![p]Next time I try this I might marinade the butt first. I recommend trying this if you want something different that you don't need to cook overnight.
