Badass Smoked Pork Butt Recipe: This Smoked Pork Butt Is Competition Worthy

My brother-in-law makes a mean pork butt. This is the easy marinade recipe he shared with me that he uses for his oven-baked pork butt. My husband turned it into a smoked pork butt recipe that did spend just a little time in the oven at the end. It is divine. Use for pork tacos, pulled pork sandwiches or eat it as is. Leftovers can be frozen to enjoy later.

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time 6 to 7 hours

Total Time: 6 hours and 15 minutes to 7 hours and 15 minutes

Ingredients 

  • 1 pork butt (4 - 7 pounds), if large you can cut it in half 

Marinade

Optional Ingredients

  • 1 bottle beer
  • 2 large onions, sliced

Here's how to make it: 

Put all the marinade ingredients into a blender.

Blend until smooth.

Put the pork butt into a  large roasting pan or disposable roasting pan. Pour the marinade over the meat and rub to coat.

Put the meat into a  smoker. Smoke 6 to 8 hours over indirect heat, depending on how big the pork butt is.

Check the pork with a  meat thermometer. The pork is done when the internal temperature reaches 195 to 205 degrees F.

Let the pork butt rest at least 30 minutes before shredding. Another option is to place the pork butt on a bed of sliced onions in a large roasting pan, pour a bottle of beer into the bottom and put into a 250-degree F oven for an hour or two. If doing this, you can pull it off before it reaches 195 degrees F.

Alternate oven directions: Place the pork butt on a bed of onions in a large roasting pan. Add a bottle of beer or water to the bottom of the pan. Cook at 300-degrees F for 6 to 7 hours or until internal temperature reaches 195 to 205 degrees F. 

Note: If your pork butt is small, you can cut the marinade in half.
