Recipe Notes

  • If you can only find really big pork butts, ask the butcher to cut it in half for you.
  • If you don’t have a roasting pan, you can cook the pork butt in a Dutch oven.
  • Use a meat thermometer to check the temperature of the pork. Let it rest before slicing.

Here’s how to make it: 

  1. Combine the brown sugar, onion powder, garlic powder, ground mustard and smoked paprika in a small bowl.

  2. Put the pork butt into a roasting pan and season all over with salt and pepper. Rub the seasoning blend all over the roast. Cover the pork butt and refrigerate overnight.

  3. When ready to cook, bake the pork in a preheated 350-degree F oven for about 3 to 4 hours or until the internal temperature has reached 185 degrees F. Let the roast rest for 20 minutes before cutting.
