Default Butt sauces/seasoning

Anyone have ideas for pulled pork butt sauces or other seasoning method. Most people seem to cover it with BBQ sauce but I am not a big fan of this method ( it just tastes like the sauce). The bark is what I like the flavor of. Was also thinking of cutting it up into 2 or 3 pieces before smoking it in order to get more bark, or maybe a dry seasoning to kick up the flavor of the interior meat. Thanks for any ideas.

Yep, Bludawg is real close to what Us Rednecks use here in E/Central NC. As for the sauce, its hard to beat the 'ole Stand-By Scott's:

Again, I agree with the dawg on the Hog Butt dry rub. However, I omit the hot pepper and heavy-up on the garlic powder or fresh chopped garlic.

Have Fun and Happy Fourth!

I feel that a pork butt when properly cooked will stand on it's own with flavor and many people will not use a sauce with it. But then again, you will find that some people think the BBQ means sauce and really pour it on.

BlueDawg's Rub is a great start for seasoning. You can also try using an injection like Chris Lilly's to add flavor and help keep moisture within the cell structure of the meat. I add spice to the injection to boost the flavors.

I find it best to leave the sauces on the side and let the patron decide... I find many use no sauce at all, but people are individuals and have varied tastes..

What BlueDawg said.

Make the vinegar sauce up a few days ahead of time so the flavors have time to meld. You don't want to add too much of the sauce to the pulled meat. Just enough to give it a hint of the flavor from the sauce. Maybe 1/4 cup for 2 lbs of pulled pork.

I also like to wrap my butts in foil after they have the bark I'm looking for. Usually around 170 IT. Once you are done pulling the meat, add the juice that is in the foil back to the meat.

AMEN!

Further, I have actually watched a certain un-named kinfolk of mine sprinkle a little of Granddaddy's Moonshine on the Hog.

Talk about some added 'KICK'!

Enjoy your Que.............
