First Boston Butt!
 
Well, i just rubbed my first Boston Butt. Here is the rub recipe I used, in descending quantity order.

brown sugar
sea salt
garlic powder
paprika
chili powder
crushed red pepper
ground cumin
fresh ground black pepper
ground mustard
cinnamon

I will leave it in the fridge till tomorrow evening. Then I plan to throw it in the crockpot to cook on low all night, and maybe till noon or so. I saw where someone (maybe Andy M) said to cook to 160 for sliceable pork, and to 190 for pulled pork. I am aiming for pulled pork, so it might have to cook till noon. Any tips or suggestions?

I aim for higher temps. 190F is sliceable and 205 is easily pull-able.

Sounds like a nice rub. Of course with griller in your user name one would think you wouldn't be putting this in a crock pot. :wink:

Yeah I know but I won't be here all day to smell, uh...I mean tend to it. Honestly I could start it or finish it on the grill though. I usually throw a chunk of cherry wood on the grill when I am doing other stuff, so it would get some smoke to it. Which do you guys recommend? I am open to suggestions. I have a charcoal smoker too, but that's more of an all day Saturday thing. I would like to be eating pulled pork for dinner Wed night! And then Thursday for lunch. And dinner, and...

Yes, I'm doing it that way this time. Won't be too much chance of fingers getting into it before dinner tonight. Dinner is in a hour! It did smell so good from the rub though.
