Butt in the oven

Hey guys,
I've got a buddy and poor soul doesn't have an Egg. He wants to cook a butt in his oven for the fourth. I'm going to send him Elder Ward's rub recipe. However, I have no idea how to tell him to do this in the oven. Any suggestions on set up? Also is there a way to set up an oven smoker that will give some wood flavor w/o setting off the fire alarms.
Now for me...if I'm using a mustard/ketchup base sauce I've got a recipe I love. However, when you are talking vinegar based sauces, which I prefer with pulled pork, I use bottled stuff from the store. I'm still looking for the Holy Grail there.

    If he was a real buddy you'd cook it for him..

    Unfortunately he lives in Winston Salem and he wants to impress his family. That would be hard to fake.
    Heard you frequent the Fire and Patio store here in Raleigh.

    OK if the fumes and stuff from his stove/oven is vented outside then their are "smokers" you can use in an oven. Kohl's carries them or any good kitchen accessory place.

    Same rules apply.. Lo and slow is better; however, ovens are dryer than your egg. The smoker will allow moisture to me maintained if the smoker is kept moist.
