For this recipe I took the idea from the Mississippi Pot Roast - but used a big ol’ pork butt. I smoked it on my drum smoker and wrapped it with savory flavors to produce some killer pulled pork.
This pulled meat isn't traditional BBQ, but it would be perfect to serve over rice or mashed potatoes for a great meal.... but I used it to make a Super Pork Sandwich.
Mississippi Pork Roast
8lb Pork Butt Shoulder Roast
2 Tablespoons Killer Hogs AP Seasoning
1 Tablespoon onion powder
1 Tablespoon paprika
1 stick butter
1 ranch packet
8 pepperoncini peppers
1 pork gravy packet
Prepare drum smoker for indirect smoking at 275 degrees using pecan wood for smoke flavor.
Score the fat on the pork butt, combine the AP Seasoning, onion powder, and paprika and season the outside of the roast.
Place the pork butt on the drum and smoke for 3 hours until the outer surface starts to brown.
Place the pork butt in an aluminum roasting pan and add the ranch packet, pork gravy packet, 1 stick of butter and peppers. Wrap the top in foil and return to the pit. It helps to insert a probe thermometer at this point to monitor internal temperature.
Once the pork butt reaches 200 degrees internal it’s done. Remove it from the pit and vent the steam from the pan.
To serve: shred the pork butt by hand and mix with a little of the juices from the pan. You can serve it over mashed potatoes or rice along with your favorite vegetables. It also makes one heck of a Super Sandwich!
