Makes. 8 or more servings. Time. 45 minutes
Keeps. 3-4 days in the refrigerator or up to 6 months wrapped well and frozen.
3/4 cup molasses
13 ounces pickling salt
2 1/4 quarts water
1 1/2 teaspoon whole cumin seed
1 teaspoon whole fennel seed
1 teaspoon whole coriander
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 tablespoon paprika
8-10-pound bone-in pork butt
Combine molasses, pickling salt, and water in 6-quart container. Add Boston butt making sure it is completely submerged in brine, cover, and let sit in refrigerator for a minimum of 8 hours. 12 hours is ideal.
Place cumin seed, fennel seed, and coriander in food grinder and grind fine (OR USE GROUND). Transfer to a small mixing bowl and stir in chili powder, onion powder, and paprika.
Remove Boston butt from brine and pat dry. Sift the rub evenly over the shoulder and then pat onto the meat. More rub will adhere to the meat if you are wearing latex gloves.
Light the Eazy-Q smoker and heat the smoker to 210 degrees F. Place pork butt in the smoker and smoke for 10 to12 hours, maintaining a temperature of 210 degrees F. Begin checking meat for doneness after 10 hours of cooking time. Use fork to check for doneness. Meat is done when it falls apart easily when pulling with a fork. Once done, remove from pot and set aside to rest for at least 1 hour. Pull meat apart with your Pit Gloves, toss with residual juices and Enjoy!
