A smoked pork butt recipe is Food Network's recipe using a homemade barbecue seasoning. The pork recipe takes about 10 minutes to prepare and serves around eight people. The recipe requires the use of a grill or a smoker to cook the pork.
To make Food Network's smoked pork butt, mix together the ingredients of the barbecue seasoning. The seasoning includes 1 cup sugar, 2/3 cup salt, 1/3 cup garlic salt, 1/3 cup smoked paprika and 8 teaspoons brown sugar along with 4 teaspoons cracked black pepper and 2 teaspoons cumin. Sprinkle the seasoning mix over a 3- to-4-pound pork butt that has been trimmed of any extra fat. Evenly spread the seasoning mix over the pork, and rub it gently into the pork.
Cover the pork with aluminum foil, and allow it to sit on the counter for an hour to give the pork time to absorb the seasoning. Put the pork butt onto a grill or smoker preheated to 300 degrees Fahrenheit. Cook the pork over indirect heat for about four to five hours or until the pork is tender. Cover the pork, and let it sit for at least 15 minutes before slicing it and serving it.
