Smoked Pork Butt with Italian Rub

Pork Butt is one of my favorites to feed a hungry crowd. Especially when it’s smoked. Pork butt is usually cooked until it is falling apart tender and served as pulled pork for sandwiches. We gave these pork butts a new flavor twist with our favorite Italian Rub.

This slow smoked pork butt with Italian spices was so flavorful from the Italian rub that has tons of garlic and brown sugar along with the Italian spices. It was sliced thin and served with The Best Macaroni Salad for an easy dinner.
