    This is our first time smoking a pork butt. I am asking if anyone can help me with making the spray to put on the butt while smoking. I have the apple cider/vinegar/bourbon to mix and spray on it but not sure of the ratio/measurement of each to use. Thanks for your help...

    The ratio is not so important.

    Mix it up & see how it tastes.

    I would think 1/3, 1/3 ,1/3 to start.

    Then adjust to your taste.

    Of course I like bourbon.  [​IMG]

    I thought you're suppose to drink that stuff, not spray it. [​IMG]

    Thank you. I have been told the the vinegar helps tenderize it so will try it. Not big on vinegar but will to try to make it good. Thanks again for your reply.

    I never spray a pork butt. It loses too much heat when opening the cooker. When I wrap it at the stall, I will put 1/2 cup of apple juice in the foil. The apple juice will add some flavor and the acidity will help with tenderness.

    Spray with 1/3 Apple Cider Vinegar and 2/3 Apple Juice..

    If you don't use a water pan I strongly suggest spritzing to keep the meat moist.
