"Mello" Boston Butt


  • 5-8 lbs Boston Butt
  • 3 liters Mello Yellow™
  • Orion's Dry Rub


Pour 3 liters of Mellow Yellow in large pot. Place Boston Butt in the pot. Using a fork, pierce all sides of the meat. Marinate for 24 hours in refrigerator. After 24 hours, remove meat from pot and apply Orion’s Dry Rub evenly over the meat. Add hickory or mesquite chips between cooking cylinder and drip pan. Place meat fat side up on the top level cooking grate. Add charcoal to both the upper and lower charcoal rings. Light and come back in approximately 3.5 hours. Check for doneness with thermometer. Depending on how much fat is in the meat, cook times may vary.
