Heck of a butt rub!!

The secret is in the prep work. I found boston butts on sale this week and was pumped about making some good barbeque. I cut slits in the meat and stuffed about 20 (yes 20) cloves of garlic into the meat. Then I made a rub of garlic, hickory seasoned salt, paprika, dried onions, mustard, cayenne, white pepper, and season all. I wrapped in tight in foil and cooked it on low heat on the grill for 3 hours. Then I opened it up, added a bunch of wood chips that I had soaked and shut the lid and let it smoke. It took about 3 more hours for it to fall off the bone, and I kept adding chips for smoke. Usually I pull the pork and mix it with sauce, but this was so good, no one even wanted sauce.We had baked beans, corn on the cob and macaroni and cheese with it. Next time, I will buy more and cook at least 2 since it takes so long.
