  1. Mix 1/4 cup of pork injection with 12 oz of apple juice to get ready to inject. You can use any liquid of your choice, we just prefer apple juice.
  2. Use a grid-like pattern to inject butt.
  3. Score fat on butt, we are cooking fat side up.
  4. Season butt with Heath Riles BBQ Honey Chipotle Rub on all sides. Allow rub to sweat in for 15-20 minutes.
  5. Put on Traeger Grill (or smoker / grill of your choice) fat side up at 225º. We used Royal Oak Pellets for this cook.
  6. Cook butt for approximately 8 hours at 225º. Our butt was approximately 160º at this point.
  7. Remove butt to wrap with Butter Bath (1/4 cup) and Apple Juice (8 oz.). Wrap foil tightly.
  8. Return to grill, we set our probe to 200º.
  9. We turned our temperature up to 275º and cooked for another 2 hours.
  10. We had a total cook time of 10 hours, our butt had an internal temperature of 200º when we took it off of the grill.
  11. Allow butt to rest for 1-2 hours.
  12. ENJOY!
