  • 1 each  Pork Butt, boneless, cut into either 3x6 inch strips or 2x2 inch chunks
  • 2 cups  Kansas City smoky rub
  • 2 quarts  Sweet Baby Ray’s Original Barbecue Sauce 


  • Trim as much unwanted fat from the pork, as you are able. Using a large roasting pan large enough to fit the pork butt, cut into portions season all sides of the pork. You may not need all of the rub. Let stand overnight. 
  • When ready, roast on a baking try at 350 degrees convection for 30 minutes. Reduce the heat to 275 degrees and continue to cook for 3 hours or until fork tender.
  • Remove from the oven, sauce with one quart of Sweet Baby Ray’s sauce, place back on the roasting pan and roast at 325 degrees for 30 minutes.
  • Serve with a side of Sweet Baby Ray’s Barbecue Sauce.
  • If you are able to smoke using a smoker, follow the same steps to get ready to cook. Place in a smoker at 225 degrees and hot smoke for 3.5 hours or until fork tender. Then follow the same saucing and heating instruction until completion.
