To prepare the wet mustard rub, you will need to use a mortar and pestle or spice grinder to mince the citrus peels and rosemary leaves.

What You'll Need

  • 1 boneless pork butt (about 5-6 pounds/2.3-2.7 kg)
  • For the Rub:
  • 2 cups/475 mL mustard (Dijon)
  • 1 cup/240 mL parsley (minced)
  • 1/2 cup/120 mL dried orange peel (or lemon peel, minced)
  • 1/2 cup/120 mL rosemary (leaves, crushed)
  • 1/4 cup/60 mL black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons/10 mL salt

How to Make It

In a medium mixing bowl, mix rub ingredients into a paste. Coat pork shoulder with rub, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate 1 hours. Preheat smoker and prepare for an 8 hour smoke.

Make sure wood chips are soaked and drained before using. Add charcoal and wood chips as necessary to keep temperature low, around 225 degrees F/110 degrees C. Smoke pork shoulder for about 8 hours or until internal temperatures reach 185 degreef F/85 degrees C.

Once pork is cooked remove from smoker. Wrap tightly in foil and allow to sit for an hour. Afterward unwrap pork butt and shred. Combine pork with 1/3 of your favorite table sauce. Keep warm and serve on white bread buns with remaining sauce on the side. Top with Cole Slaw and favorite finishing sauce.
