Preparation

When ready to cook, start the Traeger grill on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes). Set the temperature to 225 degrees F and preheat, lid closed, for 10 to 15 minutes.

Combine all ingredients for the sauce. Sauce can be made 1 to 2 days in advance and refrigerated until ready to use.

Combine all ingredients for the rub.Trim excess fat from pork. Season the pork with a layer of the rub. Let pork rest for 20 minutes.

Place pork butt directly on the grill grate and cook for 4.5 hours. After 4.5 hours, check the internal temperature of the pork, it should be between 155 and 165 degrees. If not, check it again in 30 minutes.

When the temperature reaches 155 to 165 degrees F, wrap the pork in a double layer of heavy duty aluminum foil. Pour the apple juice in foil packet with the pork and place back on the grill.

Turn grill temperature to 250 degrees F and cook for another 3 hours and check the internal temperature. Desired temperature is between 204 and 206 degrees F in the thickest part of the pork. If the pork is not up to temperature, check back every 1/2 hour until it reaches 204 to 206 degrees F.

The entire cook time should be between 8-10 hours depending on the size of the pork. Pull or shred pork, removing the bone and any excess fat. Pour sauce over meat to taste. Enjoy!
