    I've smoked a lot of stuff with my Master Forge vertical smoker, but Pork Butt was one thing I hadn't done yet.  I've been meaning to make some ever since I got the thing, and figured my annual party/barbeque was a good enough excuse as any.  I went to the local GFS and picked up 17.5 pounds.  Only cost me $27!

    I threw together some spices for the rub.  In retrospect, I think I'll use a little less of the pepper and maybe some more barbeque-like flavor spice.  Still, this worked very well.  

    Here it is all rubbed, and ready to sit in the fridge overnight.

    I put both in the smoker at around 8am the next morning.  Here it is about 4 hours into the smoke.  Also, you can see my little spray bottle that I put (in a 1 to 3 ratio) Captain Morgan's spiced rum and Apple Juice into.  Sprayed the meat about every hour.

    Gonna need to clean the smoker after this one!  I smoked them both until they hit about 165ish, then wrapped them in foil, gave an extra dose of the spray, and popped them in the oven @ 350 until  both were finished at 195.

    The finished product was delicious.  Great bark, awesome smoke coloring as well.

    Pulled for sandwiches:

    Any questions feel free to ask!  I've got a ton of leftovers so I'm going to be enjoying this stuff for days!
