Recipe Notes

Save the rib cooking juice/drippings any time you smoke ribs! Pour drippings into ziploc bag and freeze until the next time you make this Boston Butt recipe.  You won't regret it!

This is a great recipe for an overnight smoke! If you put your meat on the pellet grill at 830 pm, at 630 am you can put it in the pan and tent with foil, then remove from grill at 730.  By 8 am your meat is ready to go into the fridge, and dinner is ready! Great BBQ hack!
