  1. Heat smoker or grill for indirect cooking at 275°F. Add favorite wood for smoking.
  2. Season pork butt on all sides with 3 tablespoons BBQ rub. Let stand 30 minutes.
  3. Smoke pork butt, fat side up, for 3 to 3 1/2 hours until internal temperature reaches approximately 160°F. Remove from smoker and lay fat side down on large piece of heavy duty aluminum foil; sprinkle meat with 1 tablespoon BBQ rub.
