(feeds 12 people, with additional left over)


Ingredients

  • 1 8- to 10-pound Boston Butt Roast 
  • BBQ spice rub
  • Apple juice
  • Coleslaw
  • Hawaiian or potato rolls
  • Jack’s Signature Sweet BBQ Sauce 

Directions

Start with 1 8- to 10-pound Boston Butt Roast, and trim fat around the roast to 1/4 inch.

Season with your favorite BBQ spice rub and let sit for 1 hour.

Smoke cook for 10 hours at 250 degrees over hickory wood. Spritz with apple juice every hour.

The roast will be done when it reaches an internal temperature of 195 degrees. Then remove the roast from the smoker and wrap it in foil, letting it sit for 1 hour. 

To assemble the sliders: 

Slice 1 Hawaiian roll in half and place about 1-1.5 ounce of the pulled pork on the roll. Top with Jack’s Signature Sweet BBQ Sauce and a dollop of your favorite coleslaw.

Enjoy!
