  • 1-2 Whole Pork Butts bone in
  • 1 cup Big Bad BBQ Rub
  • Yellow Mustard for binder


  • 36 oz Favorite Light Beer
  • ½ cup Pork Fat

Honey BBQ Sauce:

  • 1 cup Brown Sugar
  • ½ cup Local Honey
  • ¼ cup Ketchup
  • cup White Vinegar
  • 2.5 tbsp Molasses
  • 2 tbsp Hot Sauce
  • 4 oz Light Beer
  • 1 tbsp Big Bad BBQ Rub


  • Burger Buns
  • Coleslaw if desired


Pulled Pork:

  • Place your pork butt on a baking sheet, lather with yellow mustard all over and generously season all sides with your favorite BBQ seasoning in order to completely cover the roast.
  • Place them in the fridge, uncovered, for at least 4 hours but ideally overnight.
  • Preheat your smoker to about 250F. Add some wood chips or wood chunks if desired for extra smoky flavor.
  • Pull your pork butt out and place on the smoker to cook until 165F internal (about 4-6 hours).
  • Once the pork butt has hit the temperature, pull it out and place in a large foil bin.
  • Fill into the bin your pork fat and light beer. The liquid in the bin should come past 50% of the pork butt’s height, so add more or less if necessary.
  • Tightly cover your bin with foil and place back on the smoker at 250F to smoke until the meat is tender to probe and shreddable (another 3-4 hours).
  • Once the pork butts are done, pull them off and let them rest for 30 minutes.
  • Remove the bone and shred them up before serving.
  • Add the shredded pork to a burger bun then finish with the Honey BBQ Sauce on top. Serve with coleslaw on the side and enjoy!

BBQ Sauce:

  • Preheat your grill to medium high temperature (around 375F) for direct cooking.
  • Heat up a cast iron skillet for the Honey BBQ Sauce.
  • Add all the ingredients for the Honey BBQ sauce to the skillet and stir over medium high heat (about 350F) until it starts to simmer.
  • Let simmer over medium heat (about 325F) for 20 minutes or until the sauce has thickened.
  • Once done, pull off and let cool.
