Nashville-Style Bar-B-Cue

Place Pork Butt on cutting board and score the fat in a diamond pattern - 1 ½” deep and 1-1/2” in wide – you WILL cut into the meat slightly. Place Pork Butt in a pan and distribute 2 – 2 ½ cups of Habanero Pepper Mash over entire shoulder. Marinate for at least 24 hours. After 24 hours, shake off excess pepper mash and distribute 1 cup of Hot Chicken Rub over entire butt – be sure to get into the deep scoring on top. Let marinate in rub for at least 4 hours.

Set smoker temp to 225°. Place Butt on rack with the fat side up. Pour a little bit of the left over excess pepper mash on top of the butt (about ½ cup). Smoke at 225° for about 12 hours or until internal temp is between 187° and 193° - the ideal temp is 189°.

Chop Pork and include some Bark. Butter both sides of a bun and place cut side down on flattop grill for approximately 1 minute. When Bun is golden brown, add 1/2 oz. of Red Sauce to bottom of Bun. Loosely pile Pork on bottom of Bun. Stripe Protein with 1 oz. of Red Sauce. Place cole slaw on top of Pork. Place Pickle Chips on top of the cole slaw. Place top Bun on Sandwich and enjoy!
